Yep. A friend of mine only has PPL students and is averaging 50 a month. Another friend of mine moved up to one of those management positions you mentioned, and is getting a lot more money but maybe...20 hours a month. IR flies a ton and I was anticipating working at AG to rack up those hours, but I ended up taking a job across the parking lot due to various circumstances. IR at Westwind is like the complete opposite. lots of ground and sims. I'm getting a lot of hours on my paystub (billable hours) and the pay is pretty good, and in the last month I've gotten approx. 45-50 hours with only IR students. So I'm getting hours on par with my friend with PPL students and coming out much farther ahead in terms of pay. And we do IR all in G1000, so that's pretty nice. But I do get a bit envious when I see those Archers flying all night long haha.That and teaching Pathway blows, if you want to build time you do it teaching instrument to Chinese guys in the old 6 pack Archers. The more you "move up" in the company to the nicer planes and higher positions (like training manager) the less you will fly. If you get your MEI to try to go Pathway they'll put you in commercial and you'll be in the sim half the time instead of flying. The only way you get 100 hours a month here is to stay on the front lines in the stack every night until 3 am teaching IR. Everything else will get you an average of 50 a month or less.
