Whats my market value

Post by Nextinline » Fri May 10, 2019 2:46 am

Hello folks,

I am sitting at just under 1500TT of which almost all is as an F.O. on a multi-engine airplane flying to Fort xxxx, xxxx lake and gfjhslioywer reserves. I am looking to take my next step and am wondering what type of market value I hold as I start looking at options. What type of ballpark salary should I expect? What companies would be some of the "better" options someone in my position should be looking at?

I'm thinking I want to stay away from regionals at this point as I want PIC time. Staying at my current employer and waiting for upgrades is also an option but I want to get a feel for my worth and at least explore the possibilities.

So whats my value?

I like the way you think.

I would imagine that you could get on with a reputable operator and upgrade shortly.

I like the way you want people to think that you have 1500 hours and yet this is the 1st time you've used the internet. One, or both, of those things is likely false.

But maybe I'm just grumpy because my Mom made me stay in my basement room because I didn't get the lawn mowed. :evil: But really, I still wish her a Happy Mother's Day.

40-50 grand in the FO seat and 60-70 in the captain seat.

Once you have the ATPL, add another 10 grand, and after several hundred hours multi-PIC, add another 10 grand. For a total of 80-90 grand.

I'd find pretty much any company that does charter work on King Airs. Avoid the dedicated medivac companies as they usually require the ATPL before upgrading...catch 22. Immediately Transwest and Westwind come to mind, but I'm sure there's more.

You define your own worth, not your employer. you decide if what a potential employer is offering meets your current fiscal needs and career goals. as in most negotiations best to ask and get terms up front so that there is no confusion.

Looking back on nearly 40 years I've managed to keep up to inflation of my dad's Era 1000 gross in 1970 now takes 8200 gross today most of that inflation driven by govt taxes and borrowing. your grandkids future but that's for another day
