MAG Aerospace

Post by jakeandelwood » Tue Jan 29, 2019 10:40 pm

Hi, does anyone know what MAG Aerospace pays their fire detection Skymaster pilots and their birddog Aero commander pilots? I noticed their ad here on Av Canada and was curious if anyone had any info on what they may be like to work for? Thank you.

I dont know the exact numbers, but they pay not too bad for a summer gig. It depends where they put you, if your stations in YSB I believe accommodations are on you, but if youre in Dryden its all paid for. I believe it was something like $4k a month for the skymasters, plus a bonus at the end if you stay for the duration of the entire contract. Alot of guys leave once they get some multi pic. Alot of people seem to really enjoy the job there

I've said it before and I'll say it again. One of the most fun jobs I've ever had.

I interviewed in January and it was around 900/week on the 337, accommodations paid for. Schedule was something like 23 on/5 off

Thanks, that's pretty decent pay if it is take home actually, and the accommodation is paid so that's even better. Thank you.

Great flying job. Going back for my fourth year. Descent pay with good equipment C-337, 25 days on, 5 days off, housing included, all VFR flying. A few are coming back and the one's who moved on look back on this flying as a great summer. Hours of flying depends on the condition for that summer as I did 235 hours one summer and 85 another year. Average over the years about 150 hours.
