I had talked with a Blimp operator a few years back and they told me the pay was $24k during the training. Once you got the training done the pay jumped up to about $30k. Once you had logged 250 hours (supervised blimping) the pay jumped up to about $38k.
The only downside to the job offer was being on the road for 51 weeks a year.
I was supposed to go to Orlando for an interview but I took a fixed wing job.
Saw this on another website too....sounds like they are never home.
The exact pay a BLIMP PILOT can earn will vary from company to company. An average annual starting salary can be around $25,000 and an experienced BLIMP PILOT can earn around $60,000 a year. Along with the annual salary, the employer will also pay for the pilot’s travel and living expenses while on the road.
