Novice,

Starting salaries can be very low. I started on about $700 per fortnight as a new pilot but after the first season/year that increased.

I don't really know much about the Visa stuff, check the DIMIA webpage that should provide you with all the information you need.

wow, Is that before or after tax? Its a really tough decision, looking on the internet it says wages only start to become comfortable after 1500 hours, which is a fair while. Do you ever regret it?

Novice,

My starting pay of $700 per fortnight was before tax.

The salary gets better with the more hours/experience/qualifications you get.

I don't have any regrets, I enjoy flying and generally being in the industry.....it suits me.

doesn't really look like i can get a permenent visa to stay. Instructor is on the list for skilled workers but i'd need 400hrs and enough money to pay for the course. With Aussie pilots looking for work too, i'm guessing i will be at the back of the pile to be employed. not sure if i can take the risk.
