Stanley E. McKinley, Associate Commissioner for Management, Immigration and Naturalization Service, requested a decision concerning the propriety of paying a hazardous duty differential to certain airplane and helicopter pilots. Although flying hazards are recognized in GS-12 position classification, they are not a factor in GS-9 or GS-11 position classification. The pilots who perform such duty on a regular basis at the lower position classifications are not entitled to hazardous duty pay since the regulations permit payment of such a differential only for irregular or intermittent exposure to hazards.
