Sky Regional jobs?

Post by Stinky »

I googled a bit but couldn't find anything. How is the pay and working conditions at Sky Regional? I'm assuming they're going to be hiring to crew the Embraers.

Safe to assume worse than Air Canada. What else is there to know?

Embraers :P you seem ahead on the scoop! Haha

I know FOs make base plus hourly wage... They can expect around 45k give or take a few bucks, thats on the Q400

And for the 15 or so Embraers going over to Skyregional I think Positions will be mainly filled with current AC embraer rated pilots to start off.

Sky Regional is going to need to crew up for a 15 A/C expansion, from Feb to June 2013. That's about 3 A/C per month.
Then factor in the WJR start up and we're talking about a lot of new tier 2 jobs.

What's the top wage for Captains? I'll assume the worst and figure Embraer will pay the same as the Q.

Not a chance. Unless guys decide to quit Air Canada and go work at SR.

45K for FO (32K base + hourly rate): if on RES and not called = not paid
70K for Capt
Per-diems $1.4/credit hour or $3 ish when out of base.
NO PAYSCALE (salary in 5 years?)

Same pay whether you fly the Q4 or the EMJ

Medical, C4 wirh AC

If this pay of 70ish fore the embraer IS true, all i have to say is G*d damn fuc**ing dumb a** pilots. Get your head out of the dog sh*t and get some brains in your fu**king head. Are you f*cking stupid morons? Any pilot who accepts that wage needs to be jumped and have your head rearranged with a baseball bat. Cant you see where this is going? You are paving the road for a lifeless career. On behalf of my kids who may want to become pilots I say thank you for ruining their future.

Everyone just calm down. One guy on a anonymous internet forum posted what the Q400 wages are also mentioned EMJ. 32K for an FO and 70K for a captain of a jet. There is just no way, is there?

I mean companies like Perimeter pay their Medevac Captains 92K before per diems, many of their sched DH8 and Metro Pilots are earning in excess of that. Calm Air pays more than that. The list can go on. 70K is a decent year 1 wage for a Turbo Prop. I really hope this guy is joking. There can be no way...
