    Airline Pilot Salary

    This seems quite impossible. You won't be operating out of California, or the US for that matter, unless you work for a US airline. All other airlines, such as Emirates and Qatar Airways, will require you to move to their base city. From there you operate flights across their route network. So there is really no pilot job that involves you just flying between Los Angeles and Doha, or Los Angeles and Frankfurt. Maybe you don't really understand how a crew's roster works? You operate flights out of an airline's base city (if they have multiple bases, you are assigned one), from there every month you get a roster, which details which flights you will operate. If you work for Qatar Airways, for example, you will get a roster that could look like: London, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Buenos Aires, Houston, Dubai etc. Its not the same flight over and over, it changes. In addition, for pilots, you are usually trained on a specific aircraft. So you operate flights to wherever that airline sends that aircraft type. I'm not very clear on that part, as it changes depending on the airline. The salary depends. I know both Emirates and Qatar Airways pay the highest, approximately 10,000USD a month for Captains. But, its very competitive to get hired. Don't think you'll get a job as soon as you get a pilot's license. It will take years of experience. Each airline has their own way of doing things. The things I said could be different depending on each airline, but what I have said is what is pretty much the standard in the industry. I'm just making a generalization.

    You usually start out as a first officer and the salary for the first year is pretty low. It is around the low $20K. However the most senior pilots can be paid over $100K- $200K. Also pilots bid for their routes and the most senior pilots get to select first. Therefore whatever is leftover goes to those with less seniority. Also you don't get to choose what type of aircraft you want to fly. You start out usually with the smaller aircraft and then if there is an opening, you then can apply to fly other types of aircraft. However know that when you jump from one type of aircraft to fly another, you lose your seniority and have to start back from the bottom. Same thing when you jump from first officer to captain; you lose your seniority.
