You can plan on ~$18,000 first year then maybe ~$25,000 second....and well just add a little extra each year as the rates go up at ASA.....:cool:

Starchkr is just joking. He's actually a cool guy to fly with despite how sarcastic he may sound on these boards.

I made $42000 first year at AirNet, but I was a floater in CMH. I was on the road all the time and had numerous 24hr weekends back in CMH. The $42,000 includes travel pay, per diem, overtime, 5th day pay, and one charter.

I made $37,000 my first year as a CMH floater and was on track to make the same this year until I changed jobs over to JetRide.

Yes rubicon it is...this is also the same guy who said he was trying to get on "at a better place" aka ASA, so that is why i gave him his pay rates for his preferred job versus just his lowly cargo job incase he has to end up suffering through Airnet.

And actually Purvis, i really was only kinda joking, mostly serious after the last thread about his job choices. But hey, i do LOVE to be sarcastic...it is fun!!! :D

here was his original thread topic...


"I have a interview coming up at Airnet. I also have one coming up at ASA. I realize a regional is a better place to work, but if that doesnt pan out I will take the job at airnet(if hired). Im just wonder how the QOL is? Is it hard working that night shift? What is a typical night like? Are you so freaking tired you have to sleep all weekend? It seems that this single pilot night IFR twin time would look excellent on a resume.. Seems like a great place to build some quality time fast."

Notice third sentence in particular...

Buuuutttttt, to make you feel better, the pay rates above are not always average, they are probably the extreme, and most will make less. Most likely in the high 20's with an average run.

Thanks Animal...I too would love to come aboard. I update every week practically, i figure the airlineapps website says it sends an update to the airline everytime i log on, so maybe it shows some enthusiasm...hmmm or maybe it shows some psychotic attributes doing it that often...maybe i will wait a little longer before my next update, like every ten days versus seven, yeah thats it, i have figured out the magic formula for being hired!!!!!:laugh: Man, after thinking that hard i need a beer, anyone care to join me?

Man i sure would love to fly Grizz around, he cracks me up in the commercials...but i think my favorite is the rabbit (dangit, i don't know his name)...the whole MX working on the plane commercial was AWESOME!!!! I think my alltime favorite has to be with the penguins though, when they come to the gate singing, and Larry(i think that is his name) asks them; "hey can you guys sing solo??" and then rabbit(DANGIT, WHAT'S HIS NAME!!!) says "yeah, so low we can't hear ya." Then the great laughter from them both...oh man, my wife has to slap me everytime i see that one cause i can't stop laughing! Oh yeah, and how about that new one on the radio where the otter is trying to teach them all spanish and they are so off it's hilarious, i wish they would make a tv spot out of it. "taco, burrito, quesadilla..." Oh man it's great!!!! I gotta turn on the radio now so i can hear it today.

starchr... He'll probably get on at ASA
I realize a regional is a better place to work, but if that doesnt pan out I will take the job at airnet(if hired).
Glad to here we are on the back burner. He'll fit in better at ASA anyway.

Hey from reading some of these posts people made it sound like a regional was a better place to work.. Sorry about the comment about a regional being better. From the research I have done it seems like Airnet is a great place to work. I didnt realize how much you could make. From their website it seemed like you couldnt make very much money. So I figured in a few years you could make much more at a regional. I think flying cargo at night would be a hell of a lot more fun than sitting right seat on a RJ for 5 years.. I have a interview in two weeks at Airnet and one coming up at Eagle and ASA... Airnet is my first choice

Hey guys I never said flying at a regional was great or ASA! I was looking at pay. Where can I make the most money building PIC... Captain pay at a regional isnt all that bad. I didnt think you could make anything close to that at Airnet.. How much can a jet captain make there at Airnet?

In most instances, a fresh regional captain on base pay will make more money than a fresh Lear captain at Airnet also on base pay.

Go to the airlines. Flying on the back side of the clock is hard work and isnt for everyone. Those guys worked pretty f'in hard for 37K a year.

I'd agree. Working at AirNet is hard work, but it was fun. Ya, first year pay at the regionals is aweful, but if you look into how much you actually work, your hourly rate increases dramatically. For example, Since October 31, I've flown 2 days. My schedule consists of reserve the rest of the month with my hard days off. If I don't get called the rest of the month, which is likely since we have a plethora of pilots, I'll get paid 75 hours to work 2 days. Then on top of that, I've picked up 2 trips (3 days total) on my days off that pay above and beyond guarantee (19 more hours). In this case, I'll have worked 5 days this month and gotten paid for 94 hours. I've also got one more 2 day trip I'm eyeing that is on my days off. If I pick that one up, I'll get paid 101 hours for 7 days of work. That gives me 24 days off (including days on reserve sitting at home) and I will still be making AirNet's prop pic base salary for the month. NOT BAD. Just got to learn to work the system.

This was the best thing I could figure out to make ends meet. After all, I DID apply to Wal-Mart and they won't hire me. I KNOW, FLAME AWAY. It's not due to my work ethics, I worked there before for 3 years. They said my lack of availability does not fit with what they need currently. Afterall, I am still on call on most of the days this month. Anyone know of any flexible part time jobs in the Denver area? Preferably South Denver? Thanks!!
