Across a fleet, you need about 7 Captain/FO pairs for any aircraft. Most of the 380 ops were with two SOs. So, 7C, 7F, and 14 SO per aircraft.JB how big does the pool of pilots need to be to keep one A380 flying normally . Also have you heard if the Melbourne A380 pilot base is open or is opening again?
I haven't heard anything about Melbourne. From what I did see, it had pretty much 100% loss of the Captains. My guess it that it's unlikely to be restarted. I'll ask around, though from what I'm hearing there's been precious little feedback from the company about anything.
