Schedule of Environmental Differentials Paid for Exposure to Various Degrees of Hazards, Physical Hardships, and Working Conditions of an Unusual Nature PART I. PAYMENT FOR ACTUAL EXPOSURE Differential rate 100 % 1. Flying. Participating in flights under one or more types of the following conditions: a. Test flights of a new or repaired plane or modified plane when the repair or modification may affect the flight characteristics of the plane; b. Flights for test performance of plane under adverse conditions such as in low altitude or severe weather conditions, maximum load limits, or overload; c. Test missions for the collection of measurement data where two or more aircraft are involved and flight procedures require formation flying and/or rendezvous at various altitudes and aspect angles; d. Flights deliberately undertaken in extreme weather conditions such as flying into a hurricane to secure weather data; e. Flights to deliver aircraft which have been prepared for one-time flight without being test flown prior to delivery flight; f. Flights for pilot proficiency training in aircraft new to the pilot under simulated emergency conditions which parallel conditions encountered in performing flight tests; g. Low-level flights in small aircraft including helicopters at altitude of 500 feet and under in daylight and 1,000 feet and under at night when the flights are over mountainous terrain, or in fixed- wing aircraft involving maneuvering at the heights and times specified above, or in helicopters maneuvering and hovering over water at altitudes of less than 500 feet; h. Low-level flights in an aircraft flying at altitudes of 200 feet and under while conducting wildlife surveys and law enforcement activities, animal depredation abatement and making agricul- tural applications, and conducting or facilitating search and rescue operations; flights in helicopters at low levels involving line inspection, maintenance, erection, or salvage operations.

Flights involving launch or recovery aboard an aircraft carrier. j. Reduced gravity flight testing in an aircraft flying a parabolic flight path and providing a testing environment ranging from 1 weightlessness up through 2 gravity conditions. 25% 7' High work. a. Working on any structure at least 100 feet above the ground, deck, floor or roof, or from the bottom of a tank or pit; b. Working at a lesser height: (1) If the footing is unsure or the structure is unstable; or (2) If safe scaffolding, enclosed ladders or other similar protective facilities are not adequate (for example, working from a swinging stage, boatswain chair, a similar support; or (3) If adverse conditions such as darkness, steady rain, high wind, icing, lightning or similar environmental factors render ~~. working at such height(s) hazardous. 15% X. Floating targets. Servicing equipment on board a target ship or barge in which the employee is required to board or leave the target vessel by small boat or helicopter. 4% Dirty work. Performing work. which subjects the employee to soil of body or clothing : a. Beyond that normally to be expected in performing the duties of the classification; and b. Where the condition is not adequately alleviated by the mechani- cal equipment or protective devices being used, or which are readily available, or wheii such devices are not feasible for use due to health coris:iderations (excessive temperature, asthmatic conditions, etc.), or c. When the use of mechanical equipment, or protective devices, or { protective clothing results in an unusual degree of discomfort. 1 400 5. Cold work. Working in cold storage or other climate-controlled areas where the employee is subjec Led to temperatures at or below freezing (32 degrees Fahrenkoit)hV. eat y
