|I've always wanted to be a bush Pilot. I've tried to ignore this curse but it won't go away damnit. I'm 32 and currently I have a steady, stable, salary job that pays well and keeps me happy but all I can do is dream about flying floats, fishing and the bugs. I have my PPL, I've done the CPL written test and I have all the requirements to get the CPL flight test over with. I'm planning on getting into the business spring of 2013, until then I plan on finishing my CPL, getting my floats rating and hopefully building some time on floats or ski's. My goal is to start on the dock for a summer, get some time on a 180, 185 whatever, move into a beaver, etc. I don't just want to fly airplanes, I'd like to be a guide, carpenter, grunt whatever. What I'm looking for is numbers. What can I expect to be paid? I've actually been in the aviation business for a couple years now and I know the pay is low and jobs aren't stable. I'd like to hear what others have been paid, where they've been or anything else you'd like to share. Thanks.
