200k minimum, plus full benefits. More if you must move to the job.

$140-160,000 is where youíll find many of these jobs paying.

601 pay lags behind 604/605 pay. MTOW is actually 44,600 or 45,100, so it straddles the Jet III/Jet IV line for NBAA. It also has significantly less range, even with the tail tank.

I'm sure you know those things since you're already typed on the plane, but I'm mentioning them in case somebody else comes across this thread.

Is the job strictly 91, or is it 135? That will play in to the numbers also. I think the posters above are pretty accurate with $140,000-160,000 in a big market. Given the operators that are still flying a plane this old though, you may end up getting offered less than that.

Thanks for the replys it does help me get prepared. Just for clarification yes it strictly 91 Corporate zero benefits. Just a straight salary. Is joining NBAA worth it to get a print out of the salary surveys?

You have to be a member AND participate in the survey to get the survey free. Otherwise itís several hundred dollars.

Zero benefits? Iíd say the salary needs to be closer to $180k in that case to account for no 401k, no health insurance, life insurance, etc.

Very Low for top market cities....unless you have 500 hours and will take any jet job you can get.

75th Percentile 145K
90th Percentile 165K
Highpoint 205K

(Based on 2017 Jet IV)

I think in major markets, you'd see a average of 180K.

Unbelievably low

How many 601's are still being flown by good 91 operations? I would suspect the vast majority are in 135 and lower tier 91 operations, who won't pay you $150k. I'm not endorsing this, its just the reality.
