It can be difficult to get work and therefore experience at first.
(For this reason as many impediments as possible must be removed. These include anything that prevents you taking an extremely low paying job wherever it is)
A year or two after getting a flying position I’d think you could expect to be earning around $50K.
Single Engine VFR probably tops out at about $80K ($100K if touring and/or good at long lineing, maybe.)
Off-Shore Co-Pilots $100K inc allowances for spending half your life “away” (sometimes unbelievably away)
Off-Shore Captains $150K (live the same places as the Co-Pilots)
ME SPIFR (The pinnacle for lots of Pilots) $130K (but can see the love interest every day)
Very approximate and general, obviously.
Do it. (or die wondering)
What's a job in helicopters pay? Does it pay? Why do you get paid more than me?
