There is a very good article in the new Flying mag, about pilots making the regionals their career, and not looking to the majors, as the majors will be stagnant for 7-8 years.

Right now our senior CRJ captains top out (after 15 years) at over $90 per hour. I could live on that. And of course, it will go up if and when we get 70 seaters.

Are the ACA guys currently in contract talks? I remember reading somewhere that the ACA wanted a contract that was "like Comair + 1%"

Early Congrats to Dave on 1000 posts!!

Top Dawg Pay at ACA.

Top Capt Pay for the CRJ is year 17, $90.15/hr. Effective May 9, 2003 year 18 CA pay is $96.10/hr. Aug 9, 2004, it becomes $100.00/hr. Thats as far as the current contract at ACA goes for now, hopefully it will get even better with the next one.

Making that much $$ per hour, you probably dont have to pick up too much open time to break into the six-figures. Especially with all of the goodies we have in our contract that get you mo' money.

So it isnt mainline wages, but for an express carrier thats good money.

Do regional folks get to fly space available on their mainline partners? Just curious.
