View Full Version : Expected Pay Raise?

So here is the quick and the dirty... I've been with my company for the past 4 years, in which I've been the senior-most Westwind captain; and for the last 12 months I've been the senior-most Lear 45 captain. So I'm a dual rated/current captain.

2 years ago, we bought a G-IV and I've been humbly waiting my turn. I'm finally going to school here in a few weeks.

So my question is, should I expect a raise with getting my IV type? If so, with no prior PIC experience (but quite a bit of SIC) in the IV, what is a reasonable number to expect and/or negotiate for? Something commensurate with ProPilot survey captain salaries? Co-pilot? Low? Average? High?

Thanks in advance.

Need more info.....
91, 135? What area of the US are you in? Do you have any other G4 departments within about 120mi to compare? Most of us can formulate a block of low/middle/high with these variables.

91, Midwest... I have an idea what the other two IV drivers are making, I'm just not sure if I should expect the same, or close to the same. Does a PIC type translate to captain pay? I guess that's my real question.

In the 121 world. Yes. In 91. Depends on the department and what them deem is fit. If you are signing the logbook on the flight you are PIC

Wut? I fly 121, have a PIC type, and I'm not making Captain pay or wearing four stripes.

My opinion is the OP should be compensated as a NBAA Jet IV Captain. Even being new to the airplane, he isn't new to the operation and compensation should be commensurate with the largest airframe flown.

I guess it may have been a little confusing. Log book signer gets the pay 💰

Depends how badly they want to keep you, and how badly you want to stay.
