Leaves of Absence (LOA)

Leaves of Absence (LOA) are available for up to 90 days per calendar year. An LOA is requested directly from Human Resources via email.

The pilot can automatically terminate the LOA by filing a Flight Report. If a Flight-Report is not filed by the 90th day, the pilot will be considered 'inactive' and subject to removal from the active roster.

Unused LOA days are not carried over to the following year. Longer-term LOAs may be requested from the Human Resources Division for other extenuating circumstances.
