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???

"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....;)

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!

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...

Oh, and yes, you can name yourself Ron Jeremy...you might not have Schmekis, but you can still be a dick. :smash:

Actually I dont do a whole lot since you asked, however my a@@ is on as CP so I should be compensated as such. If you werent a regional loser you might have some understanding of how 135 regs work. Thanks for your input though.

Exactly... but we are starting to fly a lot lately!

In reality here is what I do... flying is vacation to me.

Manage Maintenance, hire/maintain a copilot, stock the aircraft, make hotel/car/etc. reservations for everyflight, File Flight plans, provide financial documents for owners, handle aircraft related subscriptions, negotiate pricing for fuel, etc., Handle international ops, manage insurance, work on new aircraft purchases/sales, and this is only what I could think of while typing... im sure the list goes on.
