2023 contracts are happening early now.


Recommended Posts

Would love to know where some of you are making that kind of money. Creeping up on 6000hrs, over 30% of that on mediums, 2k on the line and work my *** off. Lots of international work. Never broke 120K yet.

The funny thing is that 170-190 should be the going rate for moving drills and skiing if not all skilled experienced pilots! Why do those bus drivers at aircanada and westjet make 200k+  as experienced captains yet we have fight tooth and nail for what we deserve? Our job is more dangerous, requires a higher skill level and we have to deal with customers, load and unload their gear and deal with their crazy comments at times!

Lightweights.....I work 1 week on / 3 weeks off and make 200K/month....plus fresh prostitutes delivered daily whenever I want. I also get someone to prepare my twice daily bubble baths during the work day in-between flights.

You all need to learn to negotiate harder.

 

I also refuse to fly a machine without air conditioning or without a continuous looping track of "Fortunate Son" blaring through the audio system on demand.

I was saying this exact same thing 20 years ago, using those same numbers.

There's never been a better time to ask for the conditions you believe you deserve.

The industry is hurting for guys with time and experience.

If we all stopped accepting poor pay/schedules/etc, there would be a shift.

The company I work for recently put most guys on straight salary (with a considerable bump over the old system that hinged on flight pay).

It's a refreshing change, and shows this company is looking to the future. We already had a good schedule, now the pay is closer to where it needs to be. And believe it or not, we're fully crewed for the year.
