Can anyone tell me what the average and high end pay is for a Hawker 800 Series ProLine Captain? Sounds like most of the benefits etc are about the same. Is business class travel the norm for compensated airline travel when going outside of India?

I dont know much but I do know a few Hawker 800 pilots.
Never asked them about their benefits though.
Average pay for captains for business jets in India is about $10,000. Few have managed $16,000 around here.
You being an expat might expect a short contract and a better deal though.
Plenty of Hawker 800s coming into India these days.
Business class travel is a norm with most operators.

That's what I was thinking. It has come down some over the last few years. Ain't riding economy class for 14 hours each way either!

I know a captain who used to fly this aircraft and the his pay was around 9k USD and this was back in 2009, now it might be little over 10kUSD on average without allowances.
All he used to fly is domestic routes, rarely international flights, less than 50hrs a month and used to be away from home only 5-6 whole days a months...thats what i call a dream job:ok:

On offer these days I see is around $8000-9000 , sometimes its higher but make sure they are paying your taxes in India correctly... then of course you might have problems with taxes back home like in the USA when you earn over $88 000 something.. More often is Business class at start and end of contract and Economy for your vacation, and dont let them try and give you just 2 weeks vacation... if you get economy make sure you have a say in the airline you fly on and the flights booked.
