I would not talk to anybody for less than $1200/day (typed). My buddy flying the 2000 EX (EASY) gets $1500/day and turns down work. Enjoy the market now. If you are typed, you are a captain. Do not negotiate down.
As far as salary goes, I would $100,000-$120,000, but that is a guess.
Sounds like Bombardier is trying to make their customers feels better ... I still get regular calls to fly the non-EASY 2000 for $800-1000 bucks a day and I have a full time job.pilotmiketx said:Bombardier charges $500/day for pilot services. I imagine you could get more, but all the instructors are chomping at the bit to get some time in the aircraft.
The Demo pilots in Hartford start at $90K. They are all typed on 2 of the 3 (CL30,CL60 and GX)
Instructors at DFW start around $80.
Well, you do have to be competitive. To be honest, I don't know if that's what they still charge, but when we took delivery we had free use of an instructor pilot for a week and additional days were to be $500 + expenses. Everyone I've talked to only used the instructor for a couple of days, so we all still have a credit for the remainder.G100driver said:Chomping at the bit is no reason to ask for less money.
