Does anyone know on average how much an ag pilot makes? How much either per hour or per pound of fertalizer, or how much per mud mat? I live in Mass. and most of the ag stuff is for cranberries. Thanks

On Average - I think 17-20% of the gross is quite common, for marketable productive pilots.

Can vary depending on crop, rate to the acre etc.

most production will run around $800-1200 flt/hour depending on type of work and weather dry or liquid type work-- these are averages-- there are some types of work that can run even better than these listed but not the norm , such as high gal/ac. work-- Gypsy moth projects , Timber release etc. as acreage is usually high and production levels are high. I have not worked cranberries, so not in tune with costs or production levels they do. Some Co. that work cranberries - Maine heli, Ryan rotors, JBI heli

good luck ;)
