    Pay Charts

    One of the features I really liked at the old was the pay rate comparisons. Looks like they took that idea a few steps further and now compare each fleet and seat. They do offer the discalimer that hourly rates are only part of overall compensation, but the rate comparisons...

    I was just reading this thread at APC and it seems PFT is alive and well. The allure of an airline career is easy to romanticize, although to the tune of $70K-$80K I don't think these guys know what they are in for. I'm sure these young aviators could use a reality check...

    737 Captain Pay Comparison

    Cool new chart over at Airline Pilot Central: it's an hourly pay rate comparison for 737 captians for North American airlines.
