I am sure that he pays the industry standard.

He always makes such a bid deal about how he wanted to be a pilot if was not a super-zillionare actor. If he pays anything less he is a hypocrite.

PS I know that you are reading this, John. Just looking out for the working guy :)

If JT is paying industry standard, I would pack up for Ocala and bring all my worldly possessions. I'd drink the Scientology kool-aid and give my 10%. What else, maybe offer my wife (pictured in the avatar on the left) as a sacrificial jesture? Maybe not since she's looking over my shoulder about to club me with my flight bag!:eek:

I could endure a lot for a job like that.

What is industry standard pay for a 707 co-pilot these days? Last I knew it was around $28/hr in 1976.

The way this industry is going, it's probably about $13/hr today!

I guess you haven't spent much time flying with owner-pilots.

Actually, if he has the thought process most pilots do, he'd pay very little.

Considering Quantas is probably paying a chunk of his bills for the publicity, I'd bet he'd wear a tutu if they asked him!

I flew with a guy who worked for Travolta. His 707 guys are ex AF out of Andrews ( makes sense ) This guy ended up getting on with AA then furloghed and now with AirTran. Said the job was a blast and JT was a good guy and a capable pilot.

You might want to talk to the travolta pilots about him almost throwing them under the bus when he was buzzing the islands off the coast of maine. He ended up landing in bgr which was normal and we flew him or his caravan over to the island.

FAA wanted to know who was buzzing and the travolta wouldn't admit to it. So they were going to bust the whole crew. Finally travolta stepped up to it.

Also don't forget about his lack of systems knowledge on the G whiz when he landed in DCA on an electrical failure but pulled the ebrake and blew all 4 tires at the cross sections of both runways.

Are all of his planes as old as he is? A 707 and a G-II?? Does he have the electronics, etc. updated or are all of the systems old? With his money, why fly old equipment without the safety features?

Just wondering?

No love for Travolta here, except for his moves in Saturday Night fever:puke: , but it take a crew to blow all 4 tires.
