Quick turn

I just was called with an assignment. The flight leaves at 15:20. The turn is scheduled for one hour ten minutes out, a thirty minute turn and one hour five minutes back. If everything goes as planned I will finish duty at 18:20 (15 minutes after arrival). This will put me on a 14 hour 20 minute duty day.

There is a little weather in the area today. If the flight is delayed more than 1 1/2 hours I will be close to being illegal for the trip. I can only work 16 hours a day. I doubt it will happen, but I need to be aware. If I go over maximum duty day it's my certificate on the line, not the airline.

Tomorrow it looks like I will get afternoon airport standby. The pilot that has this as a line is off tomorrow. Morning airport standby is covered. I requested to pick up a trip out of a different base....doubt it will work. There is always hope.
