What are King Air 200 pilots getting paid these days?
Does anyone have survey information from NBAA or any one else?
Any information is appreciated.

Well it depends where you live and your experience level. I would say if you are flying single pilot Part 135 in a King Air 200 for example the average pay is around $45-$50K per year in the midwest. Add about another $10K at either coast. However if you can land a nice Part 91 job with a really fair boss the numbers can be much higher.
Thanks for the response. Are there any others who can comment? There must be som King Air 200 guss out ther that can share in general terms. Does anyone have NBAA pay information for B200 Captains?

Our company is union, but all pilots King Air, Pilatus, or Helicopter start at just over $50k... with typical increases for cost of living based on your base location

The contract rate around me seems to be $250-300 per day for SIC.

Our 135 op is $58/year starting for King Air capts (90 through 350), Texas based.

Contract Rate in FL for left seat in my area seems to be 400-500 with salary ranging from 50-85k part 91/135. It seams for 91 though it really just depends who you work for.

I am looking at converting my Australian ATP to FAA combined with a King Air type.
Would there be much part time co pilot work following this in LA area? Just an occasional trip.

Hey guys, I am looking at converting my Australian ATP to FAA combined with a King Air type. Would there be much part time co pilot work following this in LA area? Just an occasional trip.
Are you talking a King Air 300/350 Type Rating? Or some kind of US military-style or "overweight" KA200 sort of Type Rating? In any case, I doubt there is much of a market in the Southern California area right now for co-pilots in a single pilot (KA200) airplane. The only one that comes to mind: Years ago, West Coast Charters (at KSNA) used to hire the occasional day rate, part-time King Air 200 or 350 co-pilot, not sure if they do that anymore.

Thanks for your reply.
Briefly - I am an airline pilot flying as a captain for an Asian airline but domociled in LA. I hold Australian ATP, I am an australian.
My interest is simply to obtain an FAA ATP for future contract work if required. I thought it would be a good opportunity to combine the ATP check ride with a type rating on something like a King Air. I have many hours on Turbocommander 690's from 20 years ago but they dont appear to be very common around here.
BUT....I know almost nothing about aviation in the US.
What I would love to do is pick up some part time flying right seat in something like a small charter/corporate turbo prop. Just an occasional trip, nothing to frequent.
Do 300/350's require an FO for charter/corporate and if so does the FO require a type rating. I think from memory in oz the 350 requires a type (we call it an endorsement) and requires 2 crew for pax commercial operation and the FO would need the type also.
Is is common to use casual or part timers for FO work in such a machine?
Any info would be appreciated. Its time for me to start flying again instead of just monitoring an autopilot for 10 hours. Yawn,

I made about $60k flying the 200 10 years ago. Probably not really relevant to today so take it for what it's worth.

Was recently offered a job in GA on a king air, pay was 25,000 base plus 20-30k flight pay.
Turned it down, I'm making that at the regionals.
