Aviation Employees: How Much Do You Get Paid?

Sun May 18, 2008 12:54 am

All right everyone, I wanted to get a REAL LIFE representation of the salary for our aviation workers across the world. IF YOU DON'T MIND POSTING YOUR PAY, please post that along, what you do, where, and how long you have been at that position. If you DO mind posting such matter, then DON'T post. It is simple.

A list of probable positions include:

1. MAINLINE PASSENGER AIRLINE CAPTAIN
2. REGIONAL PASSENGER AIRLINE FIRST OFFICER
3. MAINLINE CARGO AIRLINE CAPTAIN
4. REGIONAL CARGO AIRLINE FIRST OFFICER
5. MAINLINE AIRLINE CHECK AIRMAN
6. REGIONAL AIRLINE CHECK AIRMAN
7. CARGO AIRLINE CHECK AIRMAN
8. FLIGHT ATTENDANT
9. SENIOR FLIGHT ATTENDANT (PURSER, HEAD F/A ETC...)
10. MAINLINE AIRLINE MECHANIC
11. REGIONAL AIRLINE MECHANIC
12. MAINLINE AIRLINE RAMP AGENT
14. REGIONAL AIRLINE RAMP AGENT
15. MAINLINE AIRLINE GATE/CHECK IN AGENT
16. REGIONAL AIRLINE GATE/CHECK IN AGENT
17. MAINLINE AIRLINE GATE/CHECK IN SUPERVISOR
18. REGIONAL AIRLINE GATE/CHECK IN SUPERVISOR
19. MAINLINE AIRLINE RESERVATIONS AGENT/PHONE AGENT
20. REGIONAL AIRLINE RESERVATIONS/PHONE AGENT
21. CURBSIDE ASSISTANCE AGENT
22. AIRPORT REST./FOOD/OTHER EMPLOYEE
23. AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER/TOWER
24. AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER/EN ROUTE
25. TSA/OTHER SECURITY AGENT
26. CORPORATE JET CAPTAIN
27. CORPORATE JET FIRST OFFICER
28. AIRLINE CLEANING CREW
29. AIRLINE/AIRPLANE CATERING CREW
30. AIRLINE MANAGEMENT/CORPORATE

I am sure I am missing a few.

I am still in training at a level 12 and I am at $70,000. I will be around $100,000 in about a year. Some of the old timers here are making almost $170,000.

26. CORPORATE JET CAPTAIN

Part 135 on-demand Captain, not really 100% corporate, but $95k, should break $100k this year being a Training Captain for the full 12 months. Being paid by the mile though, you never know.
Too lazy to work, too scared to steal!

According to what you quoted, you are an en route controller. How do the rate (level 12 etc...) those centers actually. I would imagine them all being level 10-12.

I guess you get what you pay for, thats why most European airlines pay the highest salaries for Cabin Crew.

What is that supposed to mean?

My company has done sub-service charters for many of your European carriers and on every single one we recieve an outpouring of compliments on our service. Comments like "This is so much better than XYZ airline" "I hope we have you again on the way back", "You guys are much friendlier than XYZ's normal flight attendants".

The sports teams and large corporations that charter us seem to like our service as well.

regional ramp attendant, with a year experince, but only 2 weeks at my current airline, making 12.53/h CDN. because i'm new its part time on call, so its inconsistent and would be hard to come up with a solid number. rest of the guys have been with the airline for 5 years

8. FLIGHT ATTENDANT

I'm not honestly sure how much I make a month. I'm going to say around $1,400 after taxes. This changes a lot though, because I'm on reserve. I've only been with the company for a year as well.
...Now they face an even greater danger...Tyrannousaurs in F-14's!!

Is this for real??? Good for them but I had no idea anybody's cabin crew got that high without considerable seniority! That sounds more like new First Officer.
