Am I paranoid, or could it be that certain forces are banding together to consolidate all training, door trainers, simulators and ground school in PIT? I can understand consolidating, and moving it to PIT would benefit me personally, but CLT would be the logical place to consolidate our training and would be best for the company. I was told, that during a meeting with simulator engineers the person who is in charge of selling our simulators (I don''t know what department he is from) told them that we can handle all the A320 training with just two simulators. This would require using each simulator for 20 hours each day. This leaves 4 hrs for maintenance and does not include a 1/2 hr preflight (FAA req) ot the inevitable 1/2 to 1hr that the training will go over. Thus we are realisticly looking at 2 1/2 hrs per night maintenace time and are not factoring in any down time when the simulators malfunction. To align the visual system alone takes at least 4 contiguous hours and must be done almost weekly. When this little fact was mentioned to the person that seems to be in charge of selling the simulators, the reply was that he was not aware of this and they had not been factoring this in to their decision to keep either 2 or 3 A320 simulator. The strange thing is that apparently the two managers from the the simulator dept were present and one said nothing while the othe went into the baffle them with bs mode. Why the lack of communication. Unless..... the managers of the sim dept are both from PIT and have manged to stay in PIT even though there are only 3 simulator operating in PIT while there are 7 operating in CLT. The manager of development engineering has cleverly kept himself and 5 of his Development Engineers in PIT while only staffing CLT with 3 of his people. So in PIT they have 5 people for 3 simulators doing the same job as 3 people do for 7 simulators in CLT. The CLT Developement Engineers ARE good, but are they THAT much better than their peers in PIT? Which brings me back to wondering why would the managers from PIT be withholding pertinent information regarding selling or keeping X amount of simulators? Could it be that they think if enough simulators are sold and removed from CLT they can justify moving the ones that are left to that old dysfunctional building in PIT? And bring all the door trainers and other learning devices to the learning center and the old school? That way the mangement won''t have to be inconvenienced by having to move to CLT? Is it possible they could be so arrogant? The CLT training center has room for all of the simulators, cabin trainers, and learning devices all in one location, not to mention plenty of classrooms and a newly built structure. PIT on the other hand is split into three locations and I''ve heard that the simulator building needs a million dollar upgrade to its sewage system, the roof leaks (not good for electronics), and they would have to limit the range of motion on the newer Airbus simulators so they don''t hit the wall with the new visual systems. Not to mention that we will also have to buy time on simuators from other companies to fulfill our training requirements if we are left with only two A320 simulators. I don''t think it is a good idea to rely on some other company to supply us with the time train our pilots and keep them current (that is a problem waiting for the wrong time to happen) I hope this isn''t another case of mangement making decision that are in their own interests rather than doing what''s best for the company. Hopefully I am wrong in my assessment but with this company it has become normal to expect the worst.
