What's a typical (I know-nothing is typical) day like in general? How many legs? Leg lengths?

What about a typical monthly schedule?

Typical? You hit the nail on the head! Nothing is typical.

On most days we see on average between 3 and 5 legs. The lengths vary greatly. On my last 7 days I flew for a little as 3.5 hrs and as many as 8.5.

Just as an FYI, pay rates and per diem are being cut.....you might want to definitely reconsider taking a job at Avantair.

What happened? I thought that avantair was one of the few fracs that were doing well?
Bummer to see the frac industry in its current state. Lots of good career potential there, hopefully things turn around for everyone.

Poor management, that is what happened. They are not willing to pay for people with actual experience to run an operation and as a result can not make a profit, even though we are constantly flying. These are the old and new pay scales (this is a permanent change as well, not temporary, and also per diem is now $1/hr down from $2/hr):
