PAY NOTES

During training pay is $1600.00 per month plus per diem of $2.40 an hour until leaving MIA 

Plan on 4 Months at $1600 a month, due to OE being backed up

First year pay begins upon completion of OE or four months from hire date, whichever occurs first. 

First year Guarantee is only 50 hours.

All travel and hotels to and from your base is imputed and taxed on your monthly pay statements.

Average crewmember monthly imputed income total - $410. The tax impact is dependent on where the crewmember lives and the number of exemptions that they claim for withholding purposes. This program is voluntary and a benefit, crewmembers can opt out.

Monthly guarantee: 62 hours

Reserve guarantee: 62 hours

Pay Hours for work on scheduled workdays: Crewmembers are paid the greater of (1.) Pay Credits (Flight + DH + Training, etc),  (2.) Calculated Rig Time (CRT), commonly known as a Trip Rig or (3.) Minimum Monthly Guarantee. CRT is calculated based on Time Away From Base at a factor of 1:4.95, which pays 4.85 pay hours for each 24 hour period away from base (24 divided by 4.95). CRT is also paid while crews are on layover or reserve in base.

All over guarantee (including work on days off pay), and per diem is paid on the last pay cycle of the month after. Ex: January per diem and over guarantee paid on February 28th (second pay check of the month).

Pay for Work on Days off: If a Crewmember performs duties, other than training, on days off he will be credited with the greater of pay credits (typically flight credit + deadhead credit) or Trip Rig plus “Extended Duty” pay of 2 hours for the first day, 4 hours for the second day, and 6 hours per day thereafter. Practically speaking, a 4 day Open Time trip would be worth about 30 pay hours.

PER DIEM

$2.40/hour 

Gateway travel to and from base is provided (gateway travel is taxable). Hotel prior to duty for rest is also provided.

RETIREMENT

401K:

The 401(k) contribution is 50% matching up to employee contribution of 10% pay. (i.e. company contributes 5% of pay if employee contributes full 10% of pay)
