Current Captains and Their Schedules
Under this subdirectory you will find a series of biographies of current HAL captains and their schedules.
I have also listed below the current and future assignments.
Please note this dates and assignments are subject to “extremely” much change, dates will vary as captains have to attend many more training classes than was usual in the past and those trainings are sometimes assigned at the last minute when space is available at the training centres. As a result there are gaps “Captain TBA” which will be filled when training courses have been sorted out.
