Salary after completion of IOE is 25K/year. Per diem is 1.58/hour, paid separately from pay check once a month.

Ex: Per diem earned in July 2005 is paid 16/17 Aug. Same for overtime,which is $150/day.

pretty low indeed but hopefully it will go up as the company grows

is per diem paid for every hour away or just flight hours or duty time?

Rather go to netjets and deal with their problems.

really? I know things will blow over but you are the first to say they would go to NJA now - before the contract, I have an offer from NJA but now don't know, I like the flying catfish a lot and think it would be fun to fly, might not be the last stop in the career but a good ride

bdog they both suck, but just incase nut jet gets a contract you will be better off. If they don't you still get time in a jet. They are both turbine, but I got think the jet is better.

Wow...are those figures roughly representative of the frax industry overall? I can't believe how low pay is getting...and why so many seem to flock to it??? These frax. companies and "management" companies must be laughing their butts all the way to the bank with the difference they're charging the owners for pilot services and what trickles down to the pilots' W2's. :confused:
