Neither encouraged nor discouraged.


The median falls in the 70-80 range.


Is that pay typical of someone with 25 years in the business, working 85 hours a week in the field, at a company with no benefits?


Or is it typical of someone working 40 hours a week, their first year at the company, with a great benefits package, and getting to go home every night?


Two entirely different stories.

My guess is that the typical working pilot is on an even split schedule of 12-14 hour workdays. Often it's 7 on, 7 off; or 14/14. I typically average 93 hours on a 7 day 12 hour schedule, for what it's worth.
