Contract Pilot Rates, What Are They?


Recommended Posts

Buddy of mine flying on contract is getting 225 per day + 100/hr flight pay moving drills with an Astar. Guaranteed 250 hrs for the season and 2 hours min per work day averaged over the season (May to September). He gets his daily on travel days, but no flight pay. He gets per diem on travel days and days he's not in camp. Tours are 4/2.

 

That works out to about 50k guaranteed for five months of work. No so bad if you've got another job lined up for the winter, but a little light if that's your whole year's take... :mellow:

Where's the beef? 412 Driver and his "good buddy" don't get out of bed for less than $1500 a day! Heck, even the guys in the Sandbox weren't raking that in!
