Default HIGH PAYING: CRJ, 320, 737, 787, 380 Pilots

Are you a first officer fed up waiting for the PIC seat because of seniority? Are you a captain who’d like to get paid much more for what you already do? Has the regular commuter route between Phoenix and San Diego been driving you nuts? Has your dream aviator adventure turned into a droll grind job? Would you like to make three to four times as much as you’re making now in North and South America, and Europe, completing the same exact duties you’re doing now?

How about following the money to China?


Here’s what one airline in China is offering:

    $625 USD safety bonus ($7,500 USD paid annually)
    PLUS $365 USD per block hour over 75 hours/month.

  • Option B (6 weeks on / 2 weeks off)
    $18,758 to $19,369 USD per month made up of:
    $16,800 USD base service fee per month
    $833 USD travel allowance ($10,000 USD paid every 6 months)
    $500-1,111 USD annual bonus based on service years ($18,000-40,000 USD paid every three years)

Don't fall for it it's a trick. If it sounds to good to be true it probably is.

Tired of commuting? Move to China! LOL. Okay, I guess that's a sales pitch.

Ask about the medical. Ask how long training is. Ask what training pay is.

What are the duty location options?
How many days on/off per month?
What are the living arrangements?
What is a typical daily schedule?

600hrs PIC in Large aircraft. What constitutes large?

China, you need to reconsider your recruiting tactics. There are very few US pilots that have an A320 or B737 type that are going to even consider coming to China. There are probably close to zero pilots with PIC time in those type that are considering China.
The US pilots with time in those types are already working for a better airline than a regional, and they are more likely to get a job with a major.

If you want to recruit US pilots then you need to focus on the regional pilots. Try offering NTR Captain positions in a 320/737 to pilots with 500 pic in a CRJ/ERJ.

If you honestly think US based pilots with a 320/737 type and time in type are leaving the US to come fly in China, then you have been breathing your own air for too long.

Are you sure about that? I know of more than a few guys that at the very least..., are looking into it!

Think about what you are saying for a moment...., For example, an A320 check airman at one of the low cost on his mid 50's, empty nester, with and adventurous other half with a taste for the exotic...., that won't start at the bottom of the pile at the brand X for many reasons..... But do you really think that it would be so out of any possibility that he would consider upwards of 350K after tax for the last 5 years and retire with a nice nest egg at 60?

This ^^^
There are people out there that will definitely consider it. A 25 year SWA captain? No, probably not. A recently divorced Spirit/Frontier captain? Maybe.

Sorry I forgot on APC everything is taken literally and I forgot to add the necessary quantifies. Yes there will be Some pilots that will consider it. I would not say Many or even A lot. Of course there will be outliers and everyone has their own unique situation, however I don't believe China or even Japan is going to solve its pilot problem with some outliers.

I've been an expat before and I enjoy it, in fact I'm getting bored flying in and out of podunk towns in the US in a RJ. I like the money in China and the commuting options but there needs to be an element of career progression. Currently the only company offering that aspect is skymark in Japan and I need about 400 more pic hrs to qualify.

Soooo... we should stop taking what people post on APC literally? Hmm. This is going to become very confusing.
