Yeah, if you actually go to the questions it also ask if you have a G280. They might be getting ready to change or adding some Gulfstreams.

I know of another large corporate flight dept. that is making the same move (fleet type) in the next 18 months...

That G280 is a great airplane - I got a close-up look at one recently. Love the ProLine Fusion up front. Very versatile airplane. Was never a big fan of the look of the G200, but the G280 is definitely an improvement in many ways.

Currently operating the 45 & 75. Bases in PDK and BHM, PNS and GPT are no longer. Talks are ongoing on what the next frame will be. Not much of a schedule, pay substandard imho.....but a solid company with strong pilot group.

What's the pay?

I was told anywhere between high 60's/low 70's to start, senior guys making near 6 figures. Current guys hoping with the new frames comes a new pay scale.

I work inside on the generation side of the company. And according to the pay level they have on the inside app its a start pay around 75K, with bonus you are looking around 85K to 90K. Bonus is 10% of your base pay x 100 to 200%. we usually get about 160%. You can look to get a 3% raise every year if they approve it and they approved this year. Pension and 401k contribute up to 6% match. I think if you want to be close to the house and don't want to deal with the airline lifestyle it will be good a fit.

I flight trained out of PDK, would be nice to be back in Decatur. I don't have 500 multi pic. But I do have 900 multi turbine. Fingers crossed

Very similar pay scale to what it was 10 years ago when I interviewed in GPT.

FO's, I think captain pay is 80K to 90K range. If they haven't changed the scale when they posted last.

No intention on flaming away, but why on earth would you move (or live) in a major metropolitan city as a qualified captain for 80-90K? I know other charter outfits paying more than that in the same equipment.....is it the benefits, pension or schedule? I'm honestly trying to comprehend why one would make the move for those wages.

1) You want to live there.

2) Stepping stone to something else.

Just off the top of my head.

Agreed, everyone has differing opinions on what benefits qualify a great gig. It just baffles me that a solid company such as SC would bring qualified people in at those numbers. Different strokes for different folks I suppose. Best of luck to those applying.

That's pretty bad pay. I make $80k flying Navajos and Caravans, working two on / two off.

Well, F it. I applied. Retiring AF, C-130 background with over 3k hours. Eh...who knows.

I can move anywhere I want right now, but no idea what I want to do...no airline calls yet, but apps have only been in for about three weeks.

I'm open to suggestions.

Breaking down the pilot bubble;
Many (not all) pilots start down a very technical path and may not be exposed to how the rest of the world as it relates to compensation. (career military folks can fall into this category)
Many pilots think about compensation based "scales" that have been long established in the labor union influenced airline industry.
Compensation in a corporate flight department is directly related to the companies pay practices that span the entire organization.(including executives)
There really are no scales, compensation lines up in ranges the typically include a lot of variable compensation based on a variety of factors.
Analyzing base pay at a lager corporation will never paint the full value of a career with a Fortune 500 company....

Id be cautious. They laid off 15-20% of their flight department personnel just a couple of months ago. Their nuclear power plant project is facing a lot of challenges similar to what happened over in South Carolina. Ask those guys how that turned out.
