Current U.S. regulations prohibit any foreign pilot from accessing the flight deck, but does not prevent a pilot with foreign certificates from being in the cabin. ALPA is providing assistance to international airlines in setting up a Jumpseat system. Canadian airlines are doing the same with jumpseat travel by offering available cabin seats. The association is currently developing a Canadian version of CASS (CAN-CASS) to further facilitate online access. The next page`s application form must be completed to avoid delays in processing your application. Any false information or misrepresentation is grounds for immediate and future denial of jumpseat privileges and may be subject to submission from the relevant authorities. In 2012, the TSA lifted the restriction for offline pilots occupying the jump seat on international flights. As this edition of Air Line Pilot goes to the press, ALPA will ease a number of logistical hurdles and expects the international jump to become a reality again in the near future. Until then, an offline pilot can only occupy a seat in the passenger cabin on international travel; Some airlines may offer a first or business seat.
Remember that most airlines that allow international cabin jumping require a check-in 75 to 90 minutes before departure to meet TSA requirements. Airline-specific requirements are listed in each airline`s procedures available on our Jumpseat website and in the ALPA mobile app under the Jumpseat tab. Seniorit, First Come/First served, or a reservation system can be used for corporate and offline drivers. As part of the boarding priority, most off-line jumpseat-fahrer airlines on a first-come-first served basis. Some airlines give priority to pilots of codeshare partners over other offline pilots. Keep in mind that mutual jumpseat agreements must first and foremost assist pilots on their way to work and be taken into account when setting the priority for access to the flight deck. Any problems that arise should be promptly referred to the master for resolve. When sitting on the flight deck, a pilot must keep his eyes and ears open; an additional crew member is a valuable asset. Jumpseater should disable mobile phones at the entrance and wear a headset. The rules of the sterile cockpit, which are in effect in the cockpit environment (and in some cases more than 10,000 feet) must be respected, but speak if necessary. Reading, speech and other non-relevant activities are prohibited during the jump.
