Default Day in the regional

Can somebody give me an in-depth and detailed look as to what a first year regional FO pay and work schedule would be? How many days on/off per week? How much would starting pay realistically be? How much flight time per month? And how many duty/commuting hours per day? Assume I work for Skywest, Republic or PSA.
Thanks!

you should spend some time looking through the regionals forum and all these questions will be answered in short order....

good luck!

Why? Is the internet going to get too full?

Why spend hours and hours combing through idiot posts like yours when he can get what he wants in a couple minutes by asking a specific question?

Work smart not hard. If you don't want to answer then don't.

First year at a regional differs depending on how quickly you can get off reserve. I was only on reserve for 3 months, two of which I commuted to reserve. But I seriously considered 1) moving or 2) quitting because commuting to reserve is a special kind of hell. The third month of reserve I was home based and that is glorious. You have a guaranteed 11 to 10 days off a month but for the most part they won't use you every day so you get way more days at home. For instance I had the entire month of January off one year and got paid to sit around at home and spend time with my family.
Moral of the story: don't commute to reserve.
And then being a line holder is fine it's an immediate pay raise pretty much but you work the not so great trips like 16hr 4 days, 12hr 3days, or 8hr 2days.

As a reserve I would take home about 2600 a month. As a line holder I'd take about 3200. Then before you know it you're on second year pay taking home the big bucks! (4000 a month or so.) did I mention we are under paid? this my experience at Skywest.

You'll probably get 11 or maybe 12 days off per month. Pay will be less than 1,000 per paycheck. 2 checks per month. Somewhere between 50 and 90 hours per month. More time on duty than you'd like to spend.
