Hey,

Does anyone have any updated information on Mountain Aviation out of Broomfield, CO? I'm looking for current QOL, Pilot pay, schedule (I know they say 7 on 4 off and 7 on 3 off rotating, but I'm wondering how many of these days on average are overnights, day trips, Standby, etc.?), and any other information one might deem pertinent. TIA!

I'll ask my buddy who flies there for specifics. I know he likes working there, but no real specific info.

"QOL is good and currently it's 7on 7 off for most of us depending on what he's looking to fly. 50k/sic, 80k/pic on Excel right now. Benefits are great, per diem 50/day, 75/day international. Days home on call depends on type of assigned week. Contract weeks are on the road sometimes travelling on day 0 and/or day8. Things have been changing a lot so no guarantee on that...."

That was his response

Hmmmm $80k/$50k not that fantastic. Average at best. Can do better at a regional airline these days.

Name me a Regional that will pay $50/hour to an FO within 5 years. I cannot think of any.

Both PSA and Envoy are advertising first year pay of $58,000.

Read the fine print. Not everything is as it appears.

There is not even a 5th year pay posted? I feel like if your too stupid to pass the caption check ride after 4 years you deserve the FO pay. It's not even in the contract last 4 years Captain starts at 65. Within 5 years at $75 an hour with 75 min a month I think you will be fine. That's not including any of the fine print bonuses.

Unless you go to expressjet you've done something very wrong if you're still an FO after 5 years.

Bump... Lots of positions open it seems. I'm a regional FO with pretty decent qol and pay right now. Not in a hurry to leave, but want to know more about the jobs. Anyone able to get me any more detailed info?

Looking for current info on Mountain ... heard they are 7/7 now. Are travel days included in the 7/7?

How is QOL on the X ? Also heard some issues with asking not to write mx items up ? I know here has been a lot upper mgt changes and again heard mixed things trying to get clarification and recent info. Thanks for any info

My college roommate flies for them. He has me convinced to apply there. The rumors about MX writeups according to him are unfounded. He has never been asked not write up a known mechanical issue.

The schedule is 8/6 and starts and ends on Tuesday. He claims that once in awhile he will get stuck on the road or day 9. My understanding is that they get paid extra for operating an aircraft on day 9, but not if they are still traveling home.

New pay scale rumored to drop tomorrow.

I just saw an ad on the Orange Site. 3000 hrs ATP, 1000 multi PIC for the FO posting. Any word on the new pay scale, or upgrade time? The ad mentions “learning the responsibilities of the PIC,” so maybe it’s a fast upgrade time.

Anybody know what the Lear 31 pays for SIC/PIC?

I have a friend who works there. My understanding, depending on Home or BJC based-PIC on Light Jets=$65-$70k and SIC=$45-$50k.

Thanks Amphib. I'm APA based now and upgrading on the LR35 for the same pay, so not worth the move.
Switching to the Citation X in the future- long as the schedule is 8/6 or better would def be worth it.

Or you could fly a KingAir with the same schedule starting at $90000 as PIC, $55000 SIC.

How about a job with the majors in 4-6 years? All of the majors will need pilots going forward as retirements increase. I met a Delta FO recently who had 4 years as an FO at SkyWest and no PIC time.
