Hi all could someone please advise what the 1 per cent is on the sliding pay scale estimator?? Is it the per diems or is per diems on top of this salary estimate?
Could someone please advise a typical take home pay for a new hire 747 anchorage year 1 and 2 and typically are you flying 64 hours or a few more each month.

Regards

Engineering and maintenance in the industry are facing a similar crunch.
Just asked a question, didnít need the the lecture. I understand youíre frustrated with your management as they have brought this upon themselves but there are a lot of people out there who would happily come across as your conditions are better than much of the worlds.

To answer your question politics, economics and time.

Politics:
Politically it would be hard to change the laws since we'd have to look at some immigration laws as well as some laws about crews, airplanes, etc. The same laws are part of an international convention that was adopted to protect the pilot's of other nations. So there are a lot of political pieces domestically and abroad attached to changing who can crew what planes with what flags. Of course nations get around this (China, some African countries) but moving these laws isn't easy.

Similar international convention and national laws prevent flag-of-convenience operations like we see with big ships.

Economics:
The upfront cost of changing these laws is large, but various groups are currently investing in doing so. As long as there are regional airline pilots to draw from it may be cheaper to recruit young, American pilots, even those wth only six months or so on the line at a regional.

Time:
By the time we modify laws to draw pilots from overseas, we will have had to fight labor leaders and ammend some international conventions. By that time economic winds will have changed.

Just my take. I could be out to lunch. Seems it's easier to pay pilots.

This has been answered over and again. Plan on guarantee. No one can forecast what the economy. Freight is supposed to be good for a few more years, but geopolitical forces can change this rapidly. Inflation thru the roof, interest rates shooting up. The feds are try to stomp on the brakes. So who knows how that is really going to shake out in the end. Plan on guarantee, anything more is gravy.
