Default CAE/FSI Simulator Instructor Pay

Anyone know the current going rate for CAE/FSI simulator instructor positions for full
& part time? Hoping the pilot shortage has caused increased pay.

Thanks.

Interviewed a few months ago with FSI and they were offering $95Kish. Turned them down because it sounded like a lot of work for mediocre wage! Have no clue as to what CAE are offering but would be curious.

Thank you for your response. To say Im dumbfounded would be a massive understatement! FSI/CAE prices are so exorbitant, they significantly gouge the customer they should pay instructors at least double that amount. Wow Id love to unionize the instructors. How unbelievably pathetic!

Is that hourly rate sim time only or all time in the training center?

In any case, for a 121 op, that’s kinda low, IMO

They must be relying on pilots who are out on medical or have a reason they need to be home every night. Those pay rates are close to what regional airlines pay by year 2 for PIC's and senior SIC's.

In 2018 I interviewed at AA (I flew for USAirways for 13 years) for A320 Sim Instructor but found out my PBGC pension would be frozen if I worked for AA. And I was capped on how much I could earn with my Loss of Medical policy so between those two it wasn't worth it.
Unfortunately, AFAIK AA is the only Sim Center here in the CLT area.
