$90k or higher.

Does anyone have an idea which turboprop captain jobs in BC pay $85-90k or more? Charter or Medevac ops. Commuting or rotational work is an option too. PM me too if you like.

Have you considered Jazz. With the YVR base being junior on the Q400, you could be a captain soon if you come if you come in with your ATPL. With a day or 2 of overtime a month it’s possible make 85-90K while being a captain at Jazz in you first year.

For the charter and medieval side I don’t know much about that in BC.

He asked for 90k/ y and you suggest Jazz? :shock: More like 36 K

Alkan, and NT Air pay close to that, but neither rotate you. Perhaps KBAL or Tindi, would.

North Wright out of Norman Wells had a Captain's rotation and I'm pretty sure they were close or exceeding 90k.

Granted flying up there in the winter requires a very particular individual.

Yup! Try Alkan (has a YCD/ YXY base) , Air North,

Jazz ( although I’m not entirely certain and my information is second hand -feel free to correct ) I’ve heard starts at around 50k-60K for LS..when working 16-18 days a month, doing 5-7 legs per day already I wouldn’t be signing up for more OT.. ( just me though)

"Wow Conair recruiting in October. Really a sign of the times."

Contract expansion assures the need for more pilots in 2020 as opposed to some years where only attrition(low -none) accounts for pilot hiring.
Regarding the OP. First year pilots are likely to make around $70k for 116 days of work(130 day with 14 days off) give or take. One would have to be about 4th year before touching on $90k and that's not guaranteed to be a BC base.

I don't think NT pays that much.

JAZZ FO's expect to make 40k in year one. Working 14-16 days a month. Thats the average. The 7 leg days out west are pretty much done. I haven't seen more than 5 legs in a day since the Q took over from the Classic fleet. I can double check, but I'm averaging 4 legs a day. The RJ does less legs, but then you're sitting for longer legs. Not for me. But to each their own!

Salary? No. It’s within spitting distance of it though before any extras 15 days a month.

Unfortunately, it looks like four of us are going to be camped up top for the foreseeable future unless more contracts and airplanes come in.
