I'd have to assume then that you also pay a respectable wage...

Ours is 3000 also (Fortune 200 Corp.) And while I dont agree with $25,000 as a starting wage, I do agree 100% with companies that publish 2500, 3000 or whatever as their minimum for entry level positions. Its their operation they can set the policies. Besides maybe Mr. Multi-million dollar CEO doesnt want some 600hr wunderkid twisting up his Gulfsream or Falcon.. geez the nerve of some guys!!!!!

You can set whatever kind of minimums you want, but if you're going to require experience that takes several YEARS to aquire, don't offer someone $25K and call it entry level.

Glad those weren't the mins at my last job! ATP and 135 captain on a B200 at 1600 hrs, 135 captain on a C650 at 2200 hrs. That being said, I started copiloting for the same said company in King Airs and Citations as a flight instructor w/ 750 hrs, and did so for 2.5 years before my ATP ride (in the B200 with a Fed, please hold your applause until the end of the show). No accidents or incidents either, thankfully (rapping on wooden forehead).
Sometimes I think that the environment in which your time is accrued should be taken into account, instead of a hardline number. IMO, while I was never lucky enough to be a military pilot, they are living proof that competancy doesn't necessarily come from thousands of hours in one's logbook.

Although I've got your times beat on both the B200 and the jet, you're a much better fisherman.:)

I too agree that corporate flight departments (much moreso than airlines) need to recruit people with some experience.

That being said, that wage is dissapointing.

Very Sad!!!!

The cleaning crew for our airplane gets paid more than $22,500!!!!!!!:puke:
Pretty sad to think that someone who's been around long enough to amass over 3000TT would even think of accepting this wage but I'm sure it'll happen.

If they do not find anyone at that experience level, they will redefine their minimum hiring standards until they fill the job. It is like one of the on-demand DA-20 operators, advertising for DA-20 PIC with 5000TT, 3000 DA-20, 2000 DA-20 PIC to start at $25,000. Who got hired a guy with about 500 hrs in a DA-20. It is like asking a girl to dance you do not know if you can get anyone until you ask. If you are unemployed, it is a great place to get current and look for your next job.

Remember grasshopper....... once the bar is set low, it is nearly impossible to raise it. Keep your dignity guys, MOST of us are professionals and deserve to get paid as one!!
