Not anymore.

There is now a set of technical questions. Given by one of the 200 Capt's. Look around at the gouge sites.

I know this is a bit off the subject, but I was wondering if any Horizon folks out there would tell my what first year pay is or just let me know if airlinepilotcentral.com is accurate. Thanks in advance.

28.52 per hour the first year and 32.04 the second. Roughly $24,000 per year with per diem.

Thanks for the info! Do you know how accurate airlinepilotcentral.com is?

Does any one know if they going to have any more interviews/classes this year after Oct 11? Those salary numbers don't match airline pilot pay. However, I'm sure you are more accurate if you work there.

Our annual contract date just chaned last week, so the numbers on airline central are off.

Probably. Nothing published yet, but that doesn't mean anything. Classes are usually published to us right before they start, meaning that people who interview usually know more than we do. On top of that, winter time is when we gear up and do all of our training in anticipation for the following summer.

Once your out of training everyone is paid min. of 898hrs a year. So multiple that to your hourly rate to get your annual pay. I was just on airlinepilotcentral.com and looked pretty much right on to me. The rjfo pay had couple little mistakes. First year pay is roughly 25.6k plus per diem.

I wanted to clarify my previous post. Everyone is paid at least 898hrs a year but if you can hold a line your min. guarantee is 957hrs a year.

Thanks for all the info guys, it helps out a bunch. I just have one more question...is commuting (even while on reserve) a bad idea. It would be from Vegas, so there are a bunch of non-stops to all of the bases. It appears commuting sounds easier than it really is. I'm new to this airline stuff, so any suggestions would be great.

How long does it take you guys to get an invitation to interview? And generally how many do they interview/hire?

I know of a couple people who commute from Vegas, one to SEA and the other to DEN. It works out for both of them (as in both are single and nothing forcing them to commute home their days off) but the DEN-LAS commute is much easier.

It's my understanding that all three types will be represented in the November class.

L.A. has been an ongoing rumor for a long time. Unless we had a substantial aircraft order (which I can't see how) don't plan on seeing it a base. We can hardly get all our flights completed with what we have (because of some planes are out of service.) We don't have enough to transfer down there. Of course, there may be something none of us know about too.
