Hey guys- what does worst case 75 hr per month take home pay look like for you at EDV 1700/1800?

Different for everyone! Itís impossible to answer this question. Depends on your tax situation. Do you have a non working wife and 4 kids or are you single? Do you live in Florida or NYC? Wouldnít it be better for you to plug 50x75 into a paycheck calculator?

Somewhere between $1 and $15,000. YMMV

I guess this question isnít that easy Iíll try to break it down. . So if youíre a first year f/o I am trying to find out what your first paycheck looks like.

1,500? 1700?

Attached is a mix of 1st and 2nd year pay. I average 78 credit hours a month. Some were near 100, some less than 60. Should give you a decent idea.

Mine are right around $1400 per check take home, so $2800. Only me on the the HSA insurance, and no state income tax. Keep in mind, this doesn't account for crashpad, groceries when sitting reserve and not flying (no per diem), transportation, etc.

The chart of all gross and net pay for one year broken down by biweekly paychecks didn't help?


Or are you looking for the literal very first paycheck?

An NYC based 900 FO was hired beginning 2018 and will gross $74K this year. Minus the $10K bonus, that's $64K. Granted the FO lives in NYC and picked up a lot on days off @ 150%.

Been here just over 2 years. I was an ATL 200 FO until recently upgrading. Grossed $68k last year and Only had one captain check so far this year. My W2 for 2018 will be around $87k. I picked up a lot of trips though.. single and no kids..

Remember, not everyone has "no" life outside of work. Also as is being seen currently, Short of a victory in 'Thunderdome', there is no open time or over 75 hours in the monthly bid because we've gone very overstaffed very quickly with the hiring not matching the original growth plans. "For a regional :barf:" we are currently pretty well paid but that's still not anything huge when it's all 75 hours a month (remember the bonus to pay was based on an average of 82 hours per month???? OOOPPPSSS)
