I have a class date of SEP 4 for the E175 and was wondering if anyone could provide some insight regarding take home pay during training. Is it the same once you start flying the line?

Any and all responses are greatly appreciated.

Training pay is 16 hours per week until completion of IOE @$40 an hour. Take home depends on what you elect to have WITHELD from that plus Social Security and federal income tax. If you are an Oregon resident subtract another 9% from whatever is left for state income tax. Add a little more back for per Diem when you aren't in base. So yeah, $900 - 1000 every two weeks is probably pretty close.

After you complete IOE you will be making $40 times however many hours you actually book or more likely the reserve 75 hour minimum initially. One you have a line you will have a minimum of 70 hours. Plus again, per Diem for duty hours out of base. Please note that hours for pay purposes are NOT the same as actual flying hour since, for instance, you have a four hour per day flight pay minimum (on the Q anyway, I don't think they actually have that on the E175 at Horizon,maybe your union guy can explain why not.) and things like deadheading will gain you time for pay purposes even though you aren't doing the flying yourself. Same for some continuation training events usually - again, talk to your union guy or - better yet - read the current CBA.

Excargodog is correct about the 175 having no minimum daily guarantee, so it's distinctly possible to have a two day trip that's only worth something like six credits.

As to why the 175 doesn't have that, the original idea was that the 175 was going to be flying long enough legs where that kind of protection wasn't required, so it didn't get put into the contract. Once the 175's actually showed up, AAG promptly gave all of the long legs to Skywest and put the Horizon E175's on Q400 routes (SEA-PDX, PDX-SEA, SEA-PSC, etc...), that make for some spectacularly unproductive trips.

Seattle to PSC? That's less than 150 nm. KPDX is like 112 miles.

Most of what you are logging has to be just taxiing around SEA, getting back and forth out to the runway. Without KCM, the SEA-PDX trip would probably be quicker to drive by the time you park and clear security...
