Good luck living anywhere near Santa Barbara on what these guys pay.

I love this part:
type training and travel throughout the West. Broad flexibility in schedule a must. Primary flights include high altitude short strips in the Western States and Rocky Mountains

In other words, "we'll give you three bounces and then consider yourself on-call to fly the owner to his ranch strip whenever he desires".

SLO won't work either. You'd have trouble living in Vernal, UT for what these guys pay.

I know its 121, but SkyWest has bases in SBA (RJ/EMB) and SBP (EMB), for any interested...

Haha Vernal with all of those rich Indians. I would imagine that Santa Barbara doesn't have to many Pt 91 operators?

Position Still Available

I interviewed for this position yesterday. Originally, it was pitched to me as a copilot position at 50-55K. When I showed up, the position had turned into a Captain position on the G200 starting in the low 40s. I felt this was maybe half of what a G200 Captain should make in Santa Barbara. Please set me straight if I'm off base here. The CEO and his staff are who I dealt with--extremely pleasant, helpful, and cordial people. Nevertheless, he could not understand why I would want more to be the Captain. I explained to him about career expectations and market rates and such. It didn't have much of an impact, though. Other factors: He was willing to provide a small RV trailer to live in (set up in a trailer park in Santa Barbara...yes, they have them there). I toured the trailer with a member of his staff. It was clean, but way too small to consider living in for anything longer than 3 months. Also, he has a Citation V and I would have been responsible to maintain currency on that as PIC as well. I do not expect to hear back from him as I think we're too far off on compensation. I told him I would not be surprised if he found someone willing to take the job in the low 40s just for the type ratings and then bail. However, I told him that's not me. So, if anyone is interested, he's looking to send someone to school soon. (His other 3 pilots have not been to school on the G200 yet. It's a brand new acquisition.). Job is advertised on CareerBuilder.com. Good luck.

Wow. 40K? Yikes.

That's a poverty wage in a place like SBA.

Don't say I didn't warn you...

C17CHS- A G200 capt in Socal, Pt91, with no rating and no time in type should start at ~$95K. $40K would be an insult for a newbie co-pilot. From what I understand, everyone there- including the Chief Pilot- is poorly paid. There's no excuse for purchasing a 15-20 million dollar aircraft and paying the crew poverty level wages. Good grief, a PT91 CJ1 captain @ SBA can expect to start at $75K (I know from personal experience). What are these guys thinking?:confused:

Good for you for not taking the type rating and running. Are you in the Santa Barbara area? I'll be happy to forward any job leads I come across to you.

Yeah, I was quite surprised myself. I was thinking along the same lines as you with regard to the airplane cost, etc., then not budgeting for decent staff wages. However, I bit my lip on that and justed stayed diplomatic. He really seemed like a great guy and his staff is awesome, but when it comes to pay, he's definitely on a different wavelength. I asked him if he had the NBAA numbers for average salary and stuff and he said yes. Just wierd.

I'm not out there yet, but I used to live in N. Cal. and anytime I see something on the West Coast it gets my interest. I appreciate the offer. I've got several irons in the fire right now, but not out West. Hopefully, something decent will pan out in the next few weeks. Cheers.

...But that's 40K with the trailer. Don't forget the small, clean RV trailer.

But how will this go over with the ladies? "Hey baby, I'm a big time G200 captain. Wanna go back to my trailer?"

You couldn't afford to buy a round of drinks for the UCSB Coeds @ the Wildcat or $40K, let alone get them to your trailer.
It would be kind of like Riggs in Lethal Weapon, bedding Euro beauties on only your charm and good looks, there in your trailer by the sea... only to be risin in the early hours, but not by bad guys, by the park police shooting @ you because you parked on some turtle breeding ground....

Oh c'mon! Whenever I go to "The Kitty" (that's what you call the Wildcat if you're an uber-hip trust-fund kid); I just wear my tie and epaulettes from my charter days. Coeds LOVE that stuff.:rolleyes:
