Air Pilot Award - Base Salary Calculations

I've had a look the Air Pilot Award 2010.

As a grade II instructor with IRTA I am getting paid under the "Co-pilot - Class 2" but I exercise the privileges a Command Instrument Rating. Total 51K
  1. B.1.8 A pilot who is required to carry out flight instruction using the privileges of an instrument rating will be paid the appropriate additional allowance as follows
Instrument flying rating - Percentage of standard rate%
Command or Class 1 - 732%
Co-pilot or Class 2 - 476%
Night VFR or Class 4 - 183%

Anyone able to shed some light if this is correct or what a Co-Pilot/Class 2 instrument rating even is? The award has no definitions for this which leaves you at the mercy of employer interpretation.

The Award (2010) predates Part 61 (2014).

When Part 61 came into play Co-Pilot ratings stopped being issued.

Dunno how that works. No such thing as copilot IR under Part 61 as Amarok says.
As a Grade 2 you should be paid an additional $3,493.50 pa
As you need to hold IR, that's + $6,132
I pay my pilots a salary of $62-69k depending on the top type they're flying.

What are you flying, and where?

...I suggest that the AFAP knows exactly what you should be paid, and once you join up they will be only too happy to assist.

As Horatio said, go join AFAP, I know they and others cop some flack but it's based on a percentage of your wage which I think is excellent and it's always nice to have that safety net when you need it!
