Hey folks. I believe the monthly guarantee is 77.5 hours with anything over 82.5 overtime, but what are you guys actually flying per month? Trying to get an idea of the min and max. If you want to fly a lot, what's the max you've flown in a month? If you don't, can you keep it pretty close to that 77.5 or what? Thanks.

Averaged about 70-75 hours per month in the logbook (80-85 hours paid block) for the last twelve years. Have flown up to 115 hours on a big overtime month. Around 50-60 hours on a month with a weeks holidays. Hope that helps.

I've been blocked to 81.5-83 or so every month for the last 12 mos. If you want to pick up someone else's shift at straight time, you can fly as much as you want as long as you don't go over CARS max, and if you post yourself available for 'On Call', and Crew Sked calls you, it's time and a half.
As long as you don't violate yourself, you can fly as much as you like. The extreme is to fly your a$$ off during vacation months... I once was paid for the equivalent of 50 hrs of straight time in 12 days (4.5 hrs min credit days at time and a half) and still got paid for a full month's block on top of that. I was able to do this since I didn't fly the amount I was paid, and thus didn't go over my CARS max. This was an extreme example, and doesn't happen very often. Having said that, I did 30K of OT last year, and it wasn't that difficult... doing a bit every month or two.

81 credit hours a month here average. It's easy to pick up extra flying, my best months were during vacation blocks when I've double dipped.

I love flying when I am on vacation too! I guess that's why I became a pilot.

It's nice to at least have the choice.
