Mirko,

The £46k is GROSS. You will have tax deducted at source.

I don't have current figures for flight pay. Bet on approximately $800-1000 per month in allowances down route.

Mirko,

It is very difficult for people to give a net figure, because it varies from person to person and depends on things such as their own personal tax code (the amount of salary allowed free of tax.) The amount of additional income they may receive, and the proportion of that income that is taxable. Pension contributions they may make, that are usually not included in the taxable element of their salary, and they will vary from person to person.

However with a very broad brush:

Using the figure you have mentioned of £ 46,884 gross
A normal UK tax allowance would be £6,475 (the amount you can earn before tax is payable.) The tax would then be £8,683.60 and the National insurance would be £ 4,248.44. This gives a total deduction of £ £12,912.04 leaving a net wage of £ 33,971.96 or £2,831.00 per month

This figure doesn't allow for additional deductions (pension, subscriptions, etc) nor does it allow for additional tax concessions such as FREA (fixed rate expenses allowance.) But it should give you a rough idea.

In addition to this you also receive a payment depending on how many hours you fly in a month, currently about 17 pounds per hour for an FO.

So with an average of 62 hours a month this equates to another 1000 (ish) pounds per month, gross. deduct tax, NI etc and you get about 550 net.

A 6 year FO takes home ie. net between 3500 and 4000 pounds per month.
As mentioned above these figures can vary widely depending on pension contributions and your hours that month.
Hope that helps

As I understand it, you have been to interview and are now in the holding pool awaiting a course date? if this is true, did you not do any preparation before the interview in terms of pay etc???? surely you should know how much the salary is of the job you applied to?

For info:-

A330 A340 and B747 are all in the same salary band, same allowances etc etc etc...

year 1 F/O basic pay before tax: £46881
flight pay before tax is currently at £13.36 per hour based on 750 hours
down route allowances are roughly $800 per month depending on trip pattern/destination etc so might be more/less

salary/flight pay subject to change depending on current ongoing pay talks!!!!!!!!

Hi fast cruiser and 3wings

tks for clear reply!
you are almost right, i make interview but i understand that salary was net (in italy we usually talk about net salary not gross), few days ago talking about my interview with a friend he told me that probably salary was gross and this is why i ask to PPRuNe and he was right!
Fast cruiser, sorry but i don't undestrand what you mean when u write:
"on current ongoing pay talks!!!!"

mirko1980: basically our pilots union (Balpa) are in the process of negotiating a pay rise as the terms and conditions have been eroded dramatically over the last few years!!!!!
