Away From Base $

Recommended Posts

Heres a sign of the times for all of you who have ever thought about becoming an IFR weenie.


CHC Global is paying $300.00 dollars a day for every day you extend a tour. Thats in addition to the AFB pay, monthly salary and the per diem. Having been caught this Christmas season with not enough crews they doubled the extended tour pay to $600.00 a day on some bases.


Might be time to go for that Instrument rating. The shortage is only going to get worse.

My employer doesnt pay a "away pay", most of us only get to the base once a year for training! We get a fair perdiem, all expenses, a monthly salary and a daily gaurentee of hours when on a job. We only work 2 weeks a month.


50 seems to be average for good companies.



Being familyless, I pulled all the holidays this year. I did get a christmas box from the office the other day show up at my motel room. I was a little blown away...


A Sweatshirt , new hat, stainless coffee mug, nice new knife.... I kept looking in the box for an aligator, but didnt see one... first time for everything!!
