    It's special pay for those who work on the flight deck of a carrier.

    Is on the Carrier? If so, he may have duties that take him to the flight deck. It doesn't mean they are up there constantly.

    Yeah, he could of worked on the deck for one day and got paid. When I was in it was that way that you got paid for the month even if you were up there for one day.

    flight deck pay can be paid to someone on any class of ship that has a helo pad, and it gets paid to crewmembers who work there, even on the DC party, as long as they get a certain number of "touches", (aka landings), in that month.

    Hope that helps.

    Hmm ok. Thanks everyone. That explains it then. Something must have brought him to the flight deck.

    What is his rate?
    If he's an engineer, it's most likely the fire party, deck guys usually do the chocking and chaining, and Ops types man the helo tower.
