Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Non-Jet Commercial Pilots, more experience generally translates to higher pay. Folks who are navigating the first five years of their careers have a median salary of approximately $43K in this position. Those who have been around for five to 10 years don't get much more, though; the median salary in that group is $47K. Non-Jet Commercial Pilots bring in $53K after working for 10 to 20 years. Survey participants who have worked for more than two decades report bringing in $70K on average.
