So Called Overpaid SULLY

Has anyone really considered what Sully was paid for doing his job? about 60 dollars.

The american media and public think pilots are overpaid. how come CNN FOX MSNBC will not cover this topic?

Are they biased?

Apparently tonight on CBS with Katie Couric, Sully is going to talk about why the best and brightest will one day not be in the cockpit. Hopefully he will use his 15 minutes of fame to show that pilots deserve
decent pay and the decline in wages will make the brightest seek other careers.

Does the splash down count for a "ON" time or "IN" time?

We're overpaid in some ways and underpaid in others.

It will be a great step forward for us as individuals and as a profession when we all realize that everything instructordude says is a blatant attempt to piss us off.

Incidentally, I didn't catch the CBS interview. Did anything of substance make it past the editors?

We, as pilots, should be paid a lot more than the industry currently pays us (that goes for all levels, regionals, majors).

But look at it from management's view: Sully just showed he can do everything / great job when sh*t hits the fan, for only $125/hr. I wouldn't be surprised if I saw some management guy at a negotiation session for a 737 operator say to the pilots, "Look what they did! And they only get $125/hr tops!"

Hobbs?
LGA... door close, wait for push clearance, taxi, taxi some more, and some more, take off, geese get in the way, find place to land, find Hudson.
Yeah, probably a half hour.

Oops. I just now realized your smiley face.
I just thought you were like InstructorDude and didn't have a clue.
It's late. I'm tired. And I get it now:)

Geez, ya wonder why this career sucks. I think he's serious!!! He's one of those dheads that sits there and proclaims that he can't believe that he gets paid for doing his job.

This career started a turn for the worst in the 80's and never came back.

Pay, benefits, lifestyle, respect is in the sh*tter. People want the cheapest ticket and could give a d@mn about what they fly or whose at the controls. They want to show up in their PJ's and slippers and pay 125 bucks to go from LAX to JFK.
