First of all, welcome at Intergalactic Airline and thank you for considering us as one of your organisations.
To make your life a bit easier, we would like to offer you some help to integrate you into the Airline, as well as it's branches and structure.
I. YOUR FIRST STEPS AT INTERGALACTIC AIRLINE
So, what do we recommend to all new members of our Airline?
A. Once you joined you should think about, which branch you would favor.
- Are you a cargo pilot? If yes, logistics would be your choice.
- Or do prefer passenger transportation? Then transit branch could be your place and organization.
- You are more the security guy? Then you can join security branch, but keep in mind - Intergalactic Airlines is neither an army, nor a paramilitary organization. It's main purpose is to transport passengers and goods through the wide spaces of the United Empire of Earth. Examples for security branch employees are the sky marshals in cabin or the Gunners on Freighters and Passengers Transporters.
- The same is valid for Support-Branch. They help Intergalactic Airlines - Or IGAIR, how we call it shortly - to do it's job. Bad space weather in Goss System? So Research will issue a travel warning to it's Airwomen and Airmen. A Genesis crashed at Terra Prime? So research will conduct an investigation for the cause of the incident.
B. When you have chosen the branch, please contact one of the relevant branch managers.
The current contact persons for the various branches are:
to be announced
They will tell you more about the department, as well as it's requirements and structure. Additionally, they will grant you the branch tag.
C. Please also introduce yourself in the thread below, who you are, why you joined Intergalactic Airlines and where you see your development in our organization.
Don't be scared, nobody will bite you. And you also do not need to write novels here at IGAIR. Just give us a small insight, who you are and where you want to be in our organisation.
After that you are ready to go.
Il. INITIAL TRAINING AND EXAM
Staff will start with Trainee ranks. During that time you have the possibility to acquire all necessary skills to do your job in your department - from cabin crew in transit to cargo pilot in logistics, from gunner in security to astrography specialist in research.
In some branches like in Transit you will finish your training with an exam. Once you have passed it successfully, you will receive your rank tag.
In other branches without completion test you will receive your rank tag at the end of your training period.
III. THE LIFE ENROUTE - AND YOUR DUTIES WITHIN
Life at IGAIR starts for all employees with either Second Officer's or Technican's Rank. Further Promotions depend on your time in the airline, as well as regular activity within.
Currently we know the following Ranks here at IGAIR.
Rank: Non-Flying/Flying Position
A. Technician / Second Officer
B. Specialist I / First Officer
C. Specialist II / Captain
D. Specialist III / Chief Captain
Passivity is not something that we are looking for, so all members being inactive for a year and not having left a trace in the forum will be suspended without comment. Sounds mean? Oh, come on, be true - even with a narrow time frame one visit per year and a small post in the forum should be in.
On request, suspended profiles can be restored, but we would never the less like to know the reasons for your absence. So please contact one of the managers in-game.
Your first promotion expects you after one year of activity in the airline. Normally, you should join First Officer's or Specialist I's Rank. Sounds quite hierarchical, right? Do not mind, we favor collegiality and friendly relations. But we also want to reward those one, that are loyal to the Airline. So you will get another shoulder patch, and - if you like - a certificate of promotion too.
So much about us ... We, the management of Intergalactic Airlines, wish you a fine time with your airline and it´s crews... and if something worries you, just let us know.
No reason to worry, Ewok. I wrote this guide via cell phone while being underway. So skipping through the forum was a bit difficult. So I added the 'to be announced' as a placeholder, until I gathered the necessary names. That was all...
