CALL TO ACTION - HELP KEEP TWO PILOTS IN THE COCKPIT
W e encourage you to engage Congress on the critical Section 744 language regarding single-pilot operations. Participate in ALPA's Call to Action regarding this issue, and ask your friends and family to participate, too. 
This program will have an impact on all of us—we need 100% participation from FedEx pilots! To participate now, click here.
WANTED: PILOTS WHO FLEW THE LINE ON SEPTEMBER 14, 2001
“As the system crawled back to life on Thursday, Americans knew getting on an airplane would never be the same again.” This line from Time magazine the week after the 9/11 terrorist attacks highlighted the impact to our industry that’s still felt today. But just three days after the attacks—on September 14—the national aviation system indeed “crawled back to life,” showing the backbone of the country.
We want to hear from pilots who flew the line that day to kick-start America’s return to normalcy. We’ll publish some of your stories in future ALPA publications. Tell us what you remember from September 14 that showed we would not be kept down. Some questions to consider:
  • What were your emotions, fears?
  • What did your spouse, family, or friends say to you as you left for work?
  • What did you say to your crew?
  • What do you remember from the flight itself? The takeoff? The landing?
  • Did you speak to any passengers?
Does any particular moment or interaction stick out in your mind? E-mail your September 14 story to Communications@alpa.org, with a maximum of 350 words. By submitting your story, you give ALPA permission to use the material in its magazine, blog, website, and other marketing or publicity avenues. ALPA may edit your story for clarity or length.
MILITARY LEAVE BEST PRACTICES
A s all of our military members are aware, USERRA can sometimes be very convoluted when it comes to interpretation and application. In an effort to assist our members, ALPA National has released an ALPA USERRA “Best-Practices Guide.”
We hope that you will utilize this guide as you balance the demands of Military Service with your FedEx commitments.

FELLOW PILOTs NEED OUR ASSISTANCE
MEM MD-11 CAPTAIN GARY GROSS’s wife Katie has been placed into hospice care. Because he needs to remain at home with his wife and their two young daughters during this very trying time for the entire Gross family, we are asking that MEM MD-11 Captains consider bumping Gary (Employee number 445951) from the following trips:
Pairing 119 on July 23rd
Pairing 197 on July 26th
FIRST OFFICER RIAN COOK’s wife Shelby collapsed on May 15th and has been diagnosed with two melanoma tumors in her brain and masses in her chest. As you can imagine, Rian has been spending an awful lot of time at the hospital as his wife fights for her life. We can help Rian. We ask that you keep Rian in your thoughts and prayers, we also ask those of you qualified to operate in the right seat of the B757 to please consider PDO bumping Rian's remaining June and July trips. Offering a PDO bump during this difficult time will be doing a tremendous favor for Rian and his family. Trips that Rian still has in June and July:
Trip 56 on 21 July
Trip 56 on 28 July
