2010 Contract Pilot Daily Rates
Summary of Results to Date

Updated July 7, 2010

 

Participant

Over 110 pilots participated in the questionnaire. All entries, excluding one hourly rate provided for a light single-engine aircraft, were used in this report. One-third of the participants were providing contract services in-between jobs, another third were strictly providing contract services, one-quarter were providing services to supplement their full-time pilot job while 6% were providing contract services in addition to non-pilot employment.

The average daily rate reported regardless of aircraft type was $738 per day with a range from $300 to $1500 per day for the domestic US. For international flight operations the rates reported were $100 to $200 per day higher. A range is included when a particular airplane type includes a sufficient number of entries.

The rates reported in 2010 are similar to the rates reported in 2008. For results from the previous report on daily rates in 2008, please click on this link.
