Default Can you shed some light on Skywest earnings..

Guys/gals, I am targeting Skywest as a regional of choice. I'd like to get informed on typical earnings for the first two years as FO and then first two years as CA. This assumes upgrade in 24 months.

Can you shed light on typical earnings in those first 4 years and also note if you are sharing numbers for a typical schedule or if you went above and beyond and picked up trips.

Also, please share typical numbers of days off in a month for the same time frame.

This will greatly help me understand and forecast earnings and QOL in those early years.

Thanks in advance.

It’s been “next week” for 5 years.

There is absolutely no way we will come close to Endeavor or Republic.

No we won’t . That’s “unsustainably” as a non-wholly owned. But NH’s will. 20 year guys probably not unless you count your 6 bonus checks...

Sorry I forgot, Republics pay is overall substantially higher because they are wholly owned.


Want to try another reason?

According to OO pilot logic they (Republic) are going out of business.

Can any of you shed some light on profit sharing? How often is that paid? Is it substantial or small? How is it calculated?

Thanks

A tired excuse. This would only be accurate if SkyWest was close to operating without profit, which isn't isn't even close to approaching. Lots of profit that could be diverted to increasing pilot salaries, while still keeping profits high.

Depends on how much you work, if you're an FO or CA, and the profits. Paid biannually. First year FO, it came out to a bit less than a normal paycheck (which covers a 2 week period of flying). So in a year, it might be close to an extra month of pay. Again, depending on how much you work. If you work the 175 on reserve, you'd make less from the profit sharing check than a CRJ guy forced to work a ton.
