For starting with a regional carrier, 19 dollars an hour seems to be the standard. What, 75-90 hours a month paid, you do the math.
The one good thing about pilot pay is raises are fairly big jumps (relative) year after year. It may be an extra 5 or 10 dollars an hour, but it's a difference between ramen and cambells.
For retirement... Well, depends on how far you get
Around 100-200k if you are getting up there in seniority.
Hope that didn't sound too bad.
