Sorry stupid question coming...Just to clarify this, to calculate pay during training, it would be 2.75 hrs per day, is that days of actual training? Or do you get paid for every day of the month while assigned to training?

How does pay work between indoc and getting in the sim?

Then it would be 2.75 hrs x # days x $108?

Looking forward to meeting my classmates.
Iím in the Oct 4th class as well. I havenít heard anything about a group chat, but let me know if you find something out.

After taxes my first paycheck was roughly $3500.

Congrats on your class date! I would not sweat a group chat until you guys figure out what base and equipment you are on (day 1). It will be more beneficial to have a group chat of people in the same base. After indoc, you will no longer be in a class room setting. Just you and an upgrading captain for personalized training for your aircraft. It is quite nice actually.

That is correct, but in my experience, I started mid-late July; it took me a few pay periods to reflect the full pay. Perhaps it could have been the proration of the month and also the transition to the new TA. But just have some money set aside for at least the first pay period. In my case, my class started after pay period closed and had to wait till next pay period to get paid (back pay of course).

Good Luck!

Actually it is very beneficial to have a whole class group chat. Once the class drop happened someone created a spreadsheet and put everybody's preferences on there so we pretty much knew before we showed, with a few exceptions, what we were going to get. Plus it is a great resource to ask questions or to blow off steam. Almost two years later our class chat is still very active. There may not be daily messages anymore but there are at least a few discussions per week.

Base chats are harder to form or get into. I think less than 50% of my new-hire class is still in the base they were awarded in class. Once you get to base you will rarely see your peers since you never actually fly with them.

Perhaps my class just did not want to be social until we all got the plane and base we did not want initially. misery loves company.. But no one created anything until a few days after. Probably right before base indoc. My base chat is definitely quiet though... Nothing to talk about yet I suppose.

Yeah, I suppose class dynamics can change drastically from one class to another.
