CUSTOMS/ICE PILOTS - question
For the (now former, but...) Customs and ICE pilots (prior to merge with CBP), some questions
(any ICE Agents familiar chime in also)
1) Did you get OGV's?
2) If you lost your FAA medical, did you remain on paid status? What did the office assign you to do?
3) Did you get HAZ-DUTY PAY?
4) How did your scheduling work? Assigned a shift, then go home? With no pager/NEXTEL calls? Or what?

1. No G-Car for line pilots. Group Sups and above did get them.
2. Don't know but most pilots had two doctors, the one that did there flight phys and there "real" doctor that they would go to for real medical conditions.
3. To the best of my knowledge they did not get Hazardous Duty Pay.
4. Schedule was rotating shifts five days a week. Remember most offices were 24/7 operations so they required coverage. Many different scheduling "plans" and duty rotation "schemes" that seemed to change on a near monthly basis. Bottom line is to expect to work some weekends and nights. As for after hours call outs, you did have a G-Cell/pager and were expected to respond if called. Didn't happen very often were I was but that was at one of the larger offices with ample 24/7 coverage. Smaller offices would probably increase the chance of call outs.
