I've done a search, but can't seem to find what I am looking for.
Does anybody have information on Hawaii Aviation/ NCA pay scales as well as what the roster/rotations and general QOL is like?

I've "Heard" about 7k or so per month starting base.
JAL ways is I think in the high 5's.
I've also "Heard" that the contract has no dental or medical benefits.
But then again.....I hear its a pretty good gig as far as 747 contract jobs go.
Doesn't make sense the rumors I've heard. If you get any HARD info...let me know too.

Here's another ref hawaiin/Nippon Cargo. Do they recruit JAA type rated guy's for the north Americain bases?
All licences are converted to a Japanese ATP during training so I don't think it is of relevance.
Suggest giving Hacs and PARC a call, I'm sure they will give you all necessary gen. as, if rumour control is to be believed, there is a lot of recruiting to come.
Hope that helps
