Depends, are you asking what the company gets per hour or how much you do?

Seriously, you do have to love it and don't think about that because I regularly did EMS flights where the company charged $65,000 for just that flight, and I was getting paid $65,000 a year. That's why we end up going overseas to work where I got paid almost 3 times as much.

Crazy times when we are looking for pilots in the VAF classifieds. Pilot shortages

I knew a fire pilot here in Canada who worked from June to September and took the rest of the year off... Said he was making a year's wages in 4 months.

Canadian dollars though, so probably pennies compared to WA and OR... :P
