6500 tax free is not bad for CRJ...especially for 500 PIC. But still lil low. Still pays more than most regionals do

You ever been to Yemen? 6500 doesnt buy much of a security detail! I thought this gig paid up around 10k a few months ago. Maybe I am remembering things goofy.

Yes, it did. FO's were $7000, also. With 6 weeks on, 2 weeks at home. Airfare paid for to go home.

They know how many hard up folks are out there, and only need one of two Captains. Some sucker will take it (I already know one).

It's Yemeni tax free. You'll still owe the IRS unless you meet certain residency / physical presence tests.

I did get PM's, but none specific to this job (thankfully). Anybody who wants an overview of this contract can do a search for "Felix" on pprune, under the middle east forum.

Another comment I'd like to offer is how screwed up pilots are in the US to think this pay is ok. Yes, better than unemployment. But not good pay.

If anybody gets the job, remember that I told you it will suck. When you figure that out, I recommend evening the score by flying the plane to an inhospitable outstation and jumping on another carrier to fly home. Perhaps leave a note expressing your displeasure with the company, and your well wishes on getting the plane returned to base.
