No. But i do. And i can contest that thats true if all you do is stanups. I would say 1300hrs a year credit is pretty easy if you live in base... (the PPS is capped at 1400hrs a year, meaning the standup or training guys that do more then that dont get more then the average pilot.. they do on the financial rewards. That a straight 3-7% of your pay every quarter depending on profit margins)

And yes the new TA it more then a 1% increase. I would say with bonuses ect. 5%. And 8% if you add in 401k. That was huge for me.. back on the Horizon topic looks as the AS 700's are closer to the hanger in TUS.. the ones going back to the leaser were in FAT. Wonder if they will bring them back to help out...

hey speaking of AS 737s.. When AS is sending them on Qx routes, are they flying half empty or did they cancel enough flights to get a decent load factor?

How do you derive the 8% result?
No, not everyone can do it, especially not new hires. Vacation, user time,, minimum daily guarantee, some standups and who knows what else. I'm just taking the numbers from the scheduling page, throw in training pay, 401k match and who knows what else. I broke into six figures by the begining of July.

But forget about pay rates, the real money is in soft time. Thus far this year I have already credited over 1000 hours on just over 500 block. You can't do that bashing out 8 legs a day for 4 hours of block.






You can't do that "bashing out 6 legs a day for 4:12 of credit" either!

What can 1st year FO expect to make monthly gross once bidding line? Are there lots of soft/premium pay available? Can you make more or less weather on Q or Ejet?

Thanks

On the Q expect about 1k per check, plus per diem around 400-600.

There is premium pay at 150% but you won't want to pick any up.

The jet trips aren't very efficient right now because the full route structure is not there yet, by once they are you will definitely make more on the jet.
