Thats correct, a new hire will make about 14,000-19,000 their first year. Depends on what acrrier and how much they fly. On average a third year Captain at a regional will make around 40,000. Tops right now are with Air Wisconsin at almost 100,000 for a 15 year Captain. They have been in negotiations for almost two years for a new contract though.
