Min for full time is 140hrs/month at 35hrs/week. I do 200/month during the busy season and closer to the 140/mo during the winter.

Summer lines are typically a 5 on 2 off or a 4 on 3 off. Duty days this summer have been 9hrs/day give or take.

Pay doesn't suck but to make any money your gonna have to work your butt off. I try to alternate seasons between working a lot and having a bunch of time off. Unfortunately its a trade off but, it has worked out pretty well for me.
Hey, quit slacking off and come bring me a mechanic. I'm stuck up here in the woods with a big-ass oil leak.

But yeah, I bill right at about 210-215 duty hours per month, which equates to 100-105 flight hours. Make no mistake though: I'm tired, and am looking forward to (hopefully) having a nice easy schedule this winter.
