The member is entitled to Land Duty Allowance at the rate corresponding to the following accumulated service: 60 points for Sea Duty, without counting the Aircrew Allowance while at sea, plus 120 points for Aircrew after the member's time at sea, equals to 180 points for determining their Land Duty Allowance rate.

The member is entitled to Sea Duty Allowance at the rate corresponding to the following accumulated service: 60 points of Sea Duty and 60 points of Land Duty Allowance equals 120 points for determining their Sea Duty Allowance rate, and 60 points for determining their Aircrew Allowance rate.
  3. A member with 180 points of accumulated eligible service while receiving only Aircrew Allowance, and 36 points for receiving Joint Task Force 2 Category of Service 2 Allowance for flying duties, is posted to a flying position on a ship. The member is entitled to the Aircrew Allowance rate corresponding to 180 points of accumulated service for Aircrew Allowance and to the Sea Duty Allowance corresponding to 36 points of accumulated eligible service.
  4. A member who has the following previous accumulated eligible service:
    1. Concurrent Aircrew and Land Duty Allowance for 96 points,

+
[Total paid days on Class B Reserve Service] × [Current rate of pay for the last rank and applicable incentive pay category achieved on Class B Reserve Service]
+
[Total paid days on Class C Reserve Service] × [Current monthly rate of pay for the last rank and applicable incentive pay category achieved on Class C Reserve Service divided by 30]
+
[Total paid days on Regular Force service] × [Current monthly rate of pay for the last rank and applicable incentive pay category achieved on Regular Force service divided by 30]

  1. a person in receipt of maternity benefits; or
  2. another person who is also in receipt of parental benefits in relation to the same child.

205.461(11) (Paid service during part of a week) If a member receives pay for part of a week, the member is entitled to a prorated amount of MATA or PATA for the remainder of the week calculated as follows:
