Does anyone have the 2008 numbers for a Challenger 604 CP in the Southeast (91 and 135)? Thanks in advance.
"Whats with that?"....:0Whats with some of these guys in the corporate world! Are you really a Cheif Pilot if you "manage" a one plane operation that rarely ever flies??? Do you guys just call yourself that because it sounds cooler to the chicks???
Please. This pilot you describe doesn't just get to walk away from the airplane when he's done. He's probably making sure the maintenance keeps on schedule, his training is scheduled (since Jo Ellen in HR is totally freakin' clueless as to what type of training he needs), approving bills, etc. So, in my opinion, if he's doing the administrative AND flying the airplane, he's chief pilot. Granted, a lot of other corporate pilots aren't necessarily chiefs and do much of the same job, but when you narrow it down to one person...I just think it is rediculous to call yourself something you're not! A Cheif Pilot is in charge of an entire flight department with multiple planes and crews, not just a one plane operation! Let's say I decide to start to call myself Ron Jeremy, does that mean that I'm going to get tons of chicks all of a sudden? Probably not!
Exactly... but we are starting to fly a lot lately!Whats with some of these guys in the corporate world! Are you really a Cheif Pilot if you "manage" a one plane operation that rarely ever flies??? Do you guys just call yourself that because it sounds cooler to the chicks???
Only the Jersey chicks; they're freakin hot!!!!!!!imp:"Whats with that?"....:0
well, Im not for gimmicky titles..."Director of Training" for example (the guy who calls FlightSafety and craves to be a manager, but isn't?)...
BUT....if being the "Chief Pilot" bumps you up 20-50K in the salary department? - ya, I'd call myself that. Most salary surveys DO reflect that title change.
keep in mind - an extra 20-50k DOES go further when it comes impressing the chiks....
