MAG Aerospace

Post by jakeandelwood »

Hi, does anyone know what MAG Aerospace pays their fire detection Skymaster pilots and their birddog Aero commander pilots? I noticed their ad here on Av Canada and was curious if anyone had any info on what they may be like to work for? Thank you.

I dont know the exact numbers, but they pay not too bad for a summer gig. It depends where they put you, if your stations in YSB I believe accommodations are on you, but if youre in Dryden its all paid for. I believe it was something like $4k a month for the skymasters, plus a bonus at the end if you stay for the duration of the entire contract. Alot of guys leave once they get some multi pic. Alot of people seem to really enjoy the job there

I've said it before and I'll say it again. One of the most fun jobs I've ever had.

Thanks, that's pretty decent pay if it is take home actually, and the accommodation is paid so that's even better. Thank you.

Great flying job. Going back for my fourth year. Descent pay with good equipment C-337, 25 days on, 5 days off, housing included, all VFR flying. A few are coming back and the one's who moved on look back on this flying as a great summer. Hours of flying depends on the condition for that summer as I did 235 hours one summer and 85 another year. Average over the years about 150 hours.

Here is all of the information from my interview. The interview was 30 min.

C337 - $938.00 / week

End of season bonus:
Key Performance Bonus - $1000 if you do excellent work
Retention Bonus - $3000 if you work the entire season

25 on / 5 off schedule
If you work on your days off you receive $200 / day

They don't pay you during training and training can last approx 2-3 weeks (VFR PPC required).
They do pay for accommodation, reimbursement for travel, and meals during training.

MAG provides crew housing. Shared accommodation with private bedroom.

If you end up away from home base, you receive an extra $50/day.

Also, they provide $45 for cellphone / month , a uniform, and iPad.

Good luck to anyone applying here in the future and to those currently working there this season.
