    Great schedule most of the time, sometimes it gets busy but a lot of time at home. Fairly laid back but you do have to do your job, including all duties getting plane ready. Great retirement if you stick around long enough to get ESOP

    Occasional work on all scheduled days but if nothing scheduled stay home.
