So I need to ask the question. Needless to say, the pay is not the primary (or even secondary) reason I am pursuing aviation but rather that I love flying airplanes. Still, a man must make a living, so I turn to you, the experts, for information about what one can expect to make as a pilot in Alaska. I have been told many things, but it seems a common bit of advice is that I should do some flight instruction right out of training in order to build up hours, make some dough, and make myself an attractive candidate for the air taxi and air charter services, which is what I would like to fly, at least for some time.
So, any and all information on pay would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure a lot of you folks are GA/private recreational pilots, but I would imagine that you still probably know a bit about the industry. Thanks in advance for anything you'd like to share with me. I hope to be among your ranks soon.
