Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. The average inexperienced worker's salary is approximately $42K, and people with five to 10 years of experience bring in more at around $49K on average. Non-Jet Commercial Pilots see a median salary of $60K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Non-Jet Commercial Pilots who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't as high as one would expect; the median compensation for this crowd sits around $70K.
