6000 hrs = $4,400 a month?

#1 Post by c_172pilot » Wed Dec 01, 2010 3:53 pm

Just looking at Aircrane ad in the job postings viewtopic.php?f=7&t=69439 and I was taken back a bit. The company wants 6,000 hours but they are only willing to pay $4,400 monthly. Is it just me or dose this seem a little low. Even if it is as a co-jo with the difficulty of jobs they perform and the hours they require I would imagine a higher pay scale. I always thought that the guys flying these large machines would be making more. I guess I am wrong.

They don't tell, but you get a buck everytime you scratch your a$$...and i mean it.

Probabely the best flying/paying job..well over 200K/year.

I'd suspect the 4,400/month is just the base salary for waking up in the morning. Add in flight pay, bush pay, meals, etc.
