My brother in law is an airline captain for one of the larger middle east companies and he does recieve quite a large salary. He told me I was crazy to pay for all the rotory training with such little prospect of work after when I could invest in fixed wing training for a fraction of the cost and stand more chance of possibly getting a job after and for a higher salary. My answer was that it was helicopters not fixed wing that have always floated my boat and that I'm not expecting a large salary , I just want to fly on a regular basis..........sometimes I think maybe I should have taken his advice and batted for the other side.
I'm not sure what his salary was when he was low time but he was recruited straight away by Cathay Pacific ( think he was lucky ) and they did look after him. I will try to find out a bit more as he is due a visit and I have promised him a ride in the 22, bit different from the airbus I suspect
I just wonder if the same can be said of the low cost carriers.
Having said that, I worked for 18 months on the ITV Airline programme about EasyJet and it seemed a relatively happy ship although the boss of Ryanair seems to have some 'interesting' thoughts about pay structures!
