Article 3 - Activity
If during the first two months, the trainee-pilot realized no flight for the company, he (she) is automatically removed. The flights made for Littoral Airlines have necessarily to be registered after each flight as a report (PIREP) on the website of the company using the online form. On the other hand, the input of PIREPS on the site of IVAO is not requested by the company and is not validated by the Staff. It is therefore useless to register the PIREPS on the IVAO website. The trainee-pilots who, at the end of the first six months following their registration, did not realize a minimum of 25 hours (of flight) on the network are removed from the company without advance notice. In case of predictable prolonged inactivity, a message will be sent to the Staff of the company. In case of inactivity over a long period without any justification, the pilot will be removed from the company. For all the pilots a minimum of 4 hours of flight per month under Littoral Airlines callsign is required on the network subject to the situations exposed above, and at the risk of temporary or definitive suspension.

The validated hours to reach the rank of qualified pilot are only the hours made on the network I.V.A.O.. Even if a trainee–pilot exceeds 25 hours registered out of the network, he (she) nevertheless stays trainee-pilot with regard to LAL as long as he (she) did not totalise 25 hours of connection on the network I.V.A.O.. Also, if he (she) exceeds 25 hours on the network before the end of two months minimum of training he (she) is automatically promoted to the rank of qualified pilot. In both cases he (she) keeps the quality of trainee-pilot during the two months. The passages to the upper rank are function of the number of hours capitalized until the rank of 1st Flight Officer.
