When this survey came out, I was slightly below the average for my position. I received a $10k/year raise 2 months later that moved me to above the average.
Fast forward 6 months and I’ve accepted a new position with a new company. They offered above the high on the Pro Pilot Survey. I didn’t negotiate. That’s just what they offered and they said the reason is that they know that’s what it’s taking to get the pilots that they want to hire.
It’s a good time to be a pilot. I’d expect next year’s results are finally going to show some significant gains.
