FedEx Trip 2011 - Last Day
Today was our final day in Memphis. We checked out late and headed to the airport around 3:00pm. We spent time as agroup comparing notes from our time here, preparing presentations for our report on the trip, and organizing ways to make sure all the people who supported us throughout the week were properly recognized and thanked. At 6:48pm we boarded our fight back to Salt Lake City and jumped on busses home to Provo. This was an outstanding educational experience for all involved!
FedEx Trip 2011 - Day Four
For most of the students in our group today was the pinnacle of the trip. FedEx provided two 4-hour blocks in their MD-10 full motion simulators and two FedEx instructor pilots to work with us. This allowed our students to practice takeoffs, landings, engine failures, windshear & crosswind techniques, and execute the occasional loop or barrel roll. The instructor pilots provided outstanding career advice and shared their personal stories with the students, which helped them realize some of the possible career choices that lie ahead. When we finished the simulators were tired and the students were smiling big.
After the simulator sessions we ate a quick lunch then jumped into the bus for a behind the scenes look at Memphis International Airport hosted by the airport operations manager. Our bus was able to drive on taxiways, runways, and all over various ramp areas to see how the airport operates. The airport operations manager was also able to show us the equipment they use to clear runways of snow and debris and how they handle repairs that occur on a daily basis. The tour concluded at the FedEx’s ramp where we drove through the lines of jets being loaded for the day sort.
Once off the flight line we returned to the FedEx flight operations building for briefings on Hazardous Materials, Flight Safety, Air Navigation, Overflight, Human Resources and Pilot Recruitment. Each of these presenters helped us understand the depth of planning that is required for a successful operation and helped us realize the level of professionalism required at FedEx. Students were able to get many questions answered and it was a great conclusion to another fantastic day at FedEx!
FedEx Trip 2011 - Day Three
This morning started with a tour of the Memphis Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). We were able to sit side-by-side with controllers and see first hand how they handle aircraft transitioning through their sectors and how they sequence aircraft for arrival into terminal areas throughout the southeastern United States. We received a thorough weather brief from the NOAA meteorologist and were able to see how controllers use computers to calculate precise metering of high volume of traffic around hazardous weather to ensure maximum efficiency throughout the airspace. After the tour through the facility we headed to the FedEx Flight Operations building for a quick lunch then moved through security to see where flights begin for all crewmembers departing Memphis.
At the Flight Operations building we were shown where crews gathered paperwork, review critical flight data, and performed preflight planning before departure. We were also able to see the flight crew facilities including rest lounges, a small theater, and locker rooms. One of the most unique rooms was a reading room that honored the pilots who had passed away while employed at FedEx.
After we departed Flight Operations we were able to tour the FedEx corporate flight department and gain some insights into how they utilize their fleet of corporate aircraft. We learned that the Lear Jets, Challengers, and Global Express jets were used to transport corporate executives, reposition mainline flight crews, carry important aircraft parts to repair broken aircraft, transport maintenance personnel, and occasionally are used for medical evacuation flights. The flight crews we spoke with gave unique insights into Fred Smith’s (founder of FedEx) personality and philosophy. Fred carries his own bag and cooks his own food when onboard an aircraft and expects others to do the same. All the people we spoke with spoke very favorably of Fred and the other executives at FedEx. After climbing through both a Lear jet and their Global Express jet we boarded the bus and headed back to the hotel.
The day concluded with most of the students huddled around a computer in the hotel lobby as our host, Captain Sudweeks, explained the bid process at FedEx and some of the trips a crewmember could expect to fly. Finally we headed out to Corky’s Restaurant for another taste of some outstanding Memphis style BBQ.
FedEx Trip 2011 - Day Two
Today (October 18th) was our first day of tours starting with FedEx’s Global Operations Control Center (GOCC). The GOCC coordinates the entire worldwide air operation and is staffed with a director of operations, dispatchers, maintenance representatives, and even sales representatives. After touring GOCC we went to see the Maintenance Operational Control Center (MOCC) this is where they coordinate all aircraft repairs and plan for scheduled maintenance. The MOCC area was subdivided into areas for each airframe FedEx operates and one area specifically for aircraft engines. After MOCC we were able to meet with the Crew Scheduling department and learn how crews are assigned to trips. The lead scheduler explained that the decisions made in the GOCC determined the capacity required between city pairs, which led to an airframe assignment to that route which was decided by MOCC, and finally crew scheduling could produce the lines for crew bidding based on the airframe assignment. This connection helped tie it all together and we took a break for lunch.
After lunch our group went to tour the maintenance facilities and we were able to see an MD-11, Airbus 310, and two MD-10 aircraft inside one of the biggest hangers any of us have ever been inside. We were able to walk inside and around the jets and talk with the maintainers who were working on engines, electrical systems, installing modifications, or performing routine maintenance. The pinnacle of the maintenance tour ended with a walk through of the newest FedEx jet, the Boeing 777F. It was parked outside and had just landed from a certification flight for a Heads Up Display (HUD) system. The jet was powered up and we we’re able to see the HUD in operation. After the maintenance tour we returned to the hotel to eat some dinner and get some rest before beginning our last tour of the day.
At 10:00pm we headed back to FedEx to see the package sort and watch the flight line in full motion. After going through security with hundreds of other employees we proceeded to the maintenance ramp to see a couple of Boeing 777’s, then went to the ramp tower to see where they handle the continual flow of inbound and outbound jets in a matter of a few hours. From our view from the ramp tower we were able to see aircraft lined up for miles for landing and a continual wave of taxiing aircraft proceeding to their gate. There were countless ground vehicles in constant motion moving cargo, preparing gates, and prepositioning equipment.
After leaving the tower we went inside the building where the sort was taking place. Thousands of boxes were being moved into the building on belts then hundreds of employees placed them on feeders so scanners would be able to read the boxes as they moved through something called “The Matrix”. The Matrix is a complex system of belts, slides, and pneumatically operated arms that divert boxes to the proper location in the facility where they get loaded into cargo containers for their next flight. The final stop on our tour was back to the flight line to see an MD-11 getting unloaded for the sort. The speed that they can completely unload an MD-11 with approximately 200,000 pounds of cargo is about 20 minutes. We departed the flightline, proceeded back through security and made it home around midnight.
FedEx Trip 2011 - Day One
Our day started at 6:00am at the Provo Airport where we boarded three shuttles to Salt Lake International Airport to catch our non-stop Delta Air lines (CRJ-900 operated by Mesaba Airlines) flight to Memphis, TN. Our students got a chance to get to know each other on the flight and after our safe arrival in Memphis, a FedEx bus took us to the Memphis Hilton. After check-in, we headed out for some outstanding Memphis style BBQ at Corky’s restaurant. Following lunch we prepared for our first day at FedEx then concluded the day eating dinner at Salsa’s Mexican restaurant. Today was a wonderful start to an outstanding educational experience.
