Career Earnings Considerations


Your airline pilot career and earnings will be influenced by your seniority. The sooner you begin flying for an airline, the higher your seniority will be, impacting your monthly schedule, vacation time, crew base location, and captain upgrade wait time.

After starting as a junior First Officer you'll begin gaining seniority, which will determine when you upgrade to Captain. This increase in responsibility comes with a significant earnings increase. The sooner you start gaining seniority, the quicker you will realize this earnings increase.
