I think they are using the actual flight time as actual working hours. Most of us work 49 hours per week (That's a 14 hour hitch, 14 days, divided by 4).

 

And they probably have all commercial pilot salaries lumped together. I'm sure it doesn't even count a CFI salary.

 

Statistics are misleading anyway.

My co workers brother in law is finishing up his internship in May. He is a orthopedic surgeon. He finished college when he was 30! He has signed a contract with a hospital for a guaranteed job. The hospital is paying him 4 grand per month for the last six months of internship, a 40 grand sign on bonus, and only $38,500 PER MONTH salary….. Oh, and his dad, a surgeon too, paid off his 180 grand school loan as a graduation present. I can't imagine making that kind of money. I had a close friend growing up who's dad was a Dr, he offered to help me thru med school and I politely passed on the offer, guess I screwed myself, huh. I never would have survived the long college stint. Oh well………..

Airline Captains can make a very good living, but they also get furloughed, lose their job when the airline goes bankrupt, and sell used cars when they lose their medical.

 

If you're not going to be a doctor or a lawyer, you might as well do something you love.

And I forgot to mention, airline pilots are required by law to retire on their 60th birthday. Well, they don't have to retire, but they can't fly an airliner under Part 121 past their 60th birthday. No fly, no pay.

 

 

It was changed to 65, but who the heck wants to work in the airline industry until 65?!

Well said BOATFIXER! Statistics are one of my biggest pet peeves! Would someone please correct me if i'm wrong here...Shows why our economy is where its at if you ask me. Anyone can make a statistic say what you want it to...sad to say but our laws, our politicians reputations, our educational system, and well just about anything regulatory. Im just like everyone else right now though, just know how to point out the problems and dont know how to fix them.
