Pro-pilot 2010 survey-

Chief Pilot GV- 125k-208k, avg 171k

Dept Manager for GV- 137k-252k, avg 192k.


If you are Chief Pilot of several aircraft, with the largest being a GV, and you supervise 15 pilots, I personally would not even consider that job if their first offer was less than 200k/yr. Just my 2 cents.

Good luck.

Ah yes...another pilot who wouldn't consider anything under 200K...:rolleyes:

Large department Chief Pilot jobs can be pretty easy - especially if you are the type who doesn't mind less flying and more corporate BS (meetings, manuals, micro-management etc)....unfortunately those type of people usually wind up being big company Chief Pilots!...:o

Large company has 15 pilots and multiple aircraft including a G-V and doesn't participate in Stanton or NBAA?

Here we go slinging mud again...

Gee, thanks for the keen insight on the chief pilot job... guess now I know what that job is like...:cool:

Once again, *I*--meaning ME-- would not even get out of bed for that job unless the first pass was 200k+... but then again, my resume is stacked vs most people. :rolleyes:

I agree with 200k is the minimum I wouldn't run that big of a flight department for less then that. I ran 4 pilots and two aircraft g3 / hawker 800 for 165 and that was a couple of years ago. Are you going to operate and train under 91 or 135? Good luck and stick to your guns, the industry needs pilots who are willing to deal with all the corporate junk for a little more money. Good Luck
