How does that work? At AirlinePilotCentral, it gives $81/hr for year one @ 80/month, that's $6480 x 12 = $78k :?:

No, he won't. Because the tax man is a CRA employee entitled to $90+ per day when travelling on business.

So long as a per diem compensation level is at or below the Federal Govt level, there is no reason it should attract the attention of CRA.

You can't forecast wages based on the minimums. I have averaged 86hrs a month plus a WDO a month since I've been on the property. There have been no months under 80hrs for me. A little OT makes a huge difference in yearly totals too and it's easy to get. Don't forget block growth too.

So 85 x 75 = 6375
1.5 x75 = 112
WDO 4.5 x 1.5 x 75 = 506

6993 x 12 = 83922.

As a year one capt. Working 15-16days a month. Add on an extra 1100/month cash in per diems. Become a bit of an overtime whore or get really creative with your bidding and it'd touch 100 in the first year or two. Actually, let's break it down a bit...

Let's say you build high credit pairings and have some NBG, for a normal month at 15 days at the 86hr mark and do 3 WDO. That's an extra g note from above numbers..All year long? 12k. Putting you at just a hair under 96k. Year one. Add on the performance incentive, a little ESOP action, including the dividends... You're now over 100 without breaking a sweat or including those 'not wages' per diems. Can't forget, those WDO numbers are based on a min credit day. Say you pick up a 6hr day.. Now you're looking at 9hrs pay. Again, not rocket science to get north of 6 figures.

There are quite a few dash drivers in the 150-160k range... Although they've been here a while.

People keep talking about these low time inexperienced kids getting hired. Haven't seen it. Everyone thus far between 2-6k with two crew and multi time with the occasional 1500hr A licenced one hiding in there.

I doubt that'll change as the costs very quickly go up below that mark in terms of training and operations.

But what do I know, I'm just some line driver.

How often does a CRA employee travel and make that 90 per day compared to a pilot?

If you understood how the guidelines work, it does not matter.

Does Jazz notify you if your application did not interest them, or do you hear back from them only if they call you for an interview?

I applied 3 months ago with 1500 hrs and an ATPL but <100 multi, and heard nothing. I would love to know if my application is still alive or dead.

From what I understand, they keep your application open for a year. Keep updating it as you gain more experience. I know nothing of your resume, but I have observed that Jazz seems to like people with IFR 70x experience. 703 captains, 704/705 FOs and captains. This is on top of the ATPL exams at a minimum.

I'd imagine a PC-12 captain with an ATPL would be in pretty good shape provided his resume/cover letter is in good shape too.

ATPL exams are not necessary, an iatra will suffice

Multi time, however still seems to be fairly important. Especially MPIC unless you have quite a significant amount of turbine or jet right seat time. Although there are likely people who have been hired with only single time I am not aware of any myself.

Last year I got a call for an interview with about 1250 TT and 300 Multi. ATPLs written. I do think they want some two crew time as well. I know they haven't even given interviews to some friends with 1500+ TT and ATPLs written, with time on the PC12, which is a bit of a bummer and thus they have passed over some good pilots/people.

Jazz requires 250 multi time minimum for non college/pathway applicants. If you don't have that your name will not show up in the system for interview calls. Explanation was rate of failure is higher (don't know numbers) for candidates with low multi time, therefore higher cost for the company hence the hard minimum. More experience, A's etc.. is obviously bonus.

I heard similar, but the choices on the form are not 250. IIRC they were "Under 500 multi" "500-1000 multi" and "1000+ multi."

I don't remember exactly but I'm pretty sure there was not a 250 multi checkbox option?

Has anyone actually been hired or even received a call for an interview with an iatra? Assuming you meet the multi and two crew experience requirements.

Yes! Having your AAs (AAs written) is important, but not a disqualifying factor. If you have experience they will take you. I know some people that got a bit too busy with life and never wrote their AAs, but have their CPL + IATRA and over 2000 hrs and were hired.

One in my course IATRA only, 1900 hours and a buddy was hired earlier this year sub 1500 with IATRA but had the PIC requirements already done for the AAs.

Well, it seems like ME time is a big factor, ME PIC time even bigger....nothing out of the ordinary. Are all newbies going onto the dash/q400?

He is building his own SIM out plywood/cardboard in his room down in the parents basement. I am sure when it's operational he will certainly enlighten us when he gets the call from JAZZ, there will be no need for a SIM evaluation because there isn't much if anything he doesn't know or has seen with the newly constructed device.......

Last class had 2 RJs I believe and about 5 or 6 Q400s, the rest being "Classic". They were all YUL based. Some people pick the plane, some pick the base.
