Regional Airline Base Pay + Extras

I remember a recent thread about Australian regional airlines and their standard base pay. I was wondering if anyone out there would care to update the figures plus add the extra entitlements for each company, i.e. staff travel, over time etc.

Cheers.

Back to the top.
I too was wondering what the actual take home amount might be for a usual month. Particularly interested in Skytrans FO position.
PM's welcome.
Cheers

Skytrans was offering $50000 base salary for an FO with a bond of 2 years for the Dash 8 endorsement. That was over 1 year ago, not sure is anything had changed.

The current agreement available on the FWA website quotes approx $46 000 for first year. Bit low I thought. Most GA twin jobs I have had were paying $65 000.

It would be a bit lean waiting for a command upgrade.

Over at REX at the moment, Captains are typically earning 50% above base salary when allowances and overtime are factored in.

F/O's are earning similar above base as well.

Interesting times indeed.

Hi Krusty,

I understand the group are still having crewing issues, why is this if the pay has improved so much?

Genuine Q.

Trojan1981,

The base pay hasn't changed. They are most likely working on days off, extension allowances...etc that bummed their weekly take home pay by 50%. When they solve the crewing crisis, they will just go back to what the base pay be.

Can someone please shed some light on the REX FO allowances?

I read a magazine article a while ago on everyday operations of REX crew and the allowances mentioned were 12k for both the captain and the FO. Is this a ballpark figure ?

Depends on the Base. Daily Travel Allowance (DTA) is the biggi'. Out of Sydney with an average of 6-8 overnights per month, all Overnight DTA (more than $5 per hour) is paid from the commencement of duty at home base til completion of that duty, and it's Tax Free! My group certificate showed that I earned approx $11K in overnight DTA for the last financial year, that's typical for most Sydney pilots, Capts and F/O's. Depending on the individuals Tax Rate, you would have to earn, I'd say between $15-18K before tax for a similar take home.

Having said that, it is an allowance, and it's intention is to cover meals while away from home base.
