|Quoting RobK (Thread starter):|
I've always wondered, what are the typical employment terms for a bizjet pilot?
Let's say a company big cheese decided to buy himself a bizjet to cart him to various conferences dotted round the globe every couple of weeks and of course a few trips a year to his mansion on some Caribbean island, but he can't fly the plane himself so has to employ someone to fly it for him. A pilot is realistically only going to be interested in a full time position to get a decent pay packet at the end of the month, and wouldn't be prepared to work on a as-and-when required basis, so how does it normally work out?
Does the CEO offer a pay packet equivalent (or better) to a "normal" every day bizjet pilot job, but the pilot spends most of his time at home or playing golf until the CEO calls him up and say he wants to fly to a conference in Hong Kong in 2 days time, or does the pilot have to come in to the office and empty bins and answer the phone when he's not required to fly, or what?
