Kauai flying is drawing down temporarily due to travel testing restrictions and quarantine mandates. Several aircraft will be temporarily parked in Everett WA, PAE - Seattle A&P Technicians will be notified today via company email about the positions available to bid through RPG(central bidding is closed). Seattle A&P employees will need to reply to the RPG email by 12.18 if they are interested in a temp bid to PAE. My understanding is that it will be day shift only and due to short staffing in Seattle limited to only A&P bid positions being eligible.
