Ever Heard Of Corporate Pilots Getting Tipped?
Yes, it occasionally happens.
With charter flights, however, it is more likely.
Yes, although the OP specifically asked about "corporate pilots" (and I replied in respect to corporate pilots), many replies have been regarding charter pilots, and perhape the OP meant both?
Having flown many times with both corporate and charter, I cannot remember a single passenger (read: usually employee!), tip a pilot ... and when I've been up front I've never received any. As for charter, well it depends. High-rollers to Vegas would seem top of the list for tippers .. business folks using charter aircraft, at the bottom.
I'd rather be on the ground wishing I was in the air, than in the air wishing I was on the ground!
