How do pilots .......

at ASA it is

One check for flight time once a month

and one check for per-diem a month

(I have a friend that flies for ASA) so Im not 100% positive...
We get paid twice a month, on the 5th and the 20th. Our pay sheets are due by the 5th of every month and accounting goes from there.
At my corporate job, I'm paid salary, once a month, on the 25th of each month. I'd much rather get paid twice a month ...
