Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Non-Jet Commercial Pilots, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Individuals who have worked for fewer than five years bring in approximately $43K on average. Those in the five-to-10 year range can expect an average that is only a touch bigger at $49K. Non-Jet Commercial Pilots who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $58K. More than 20 years of experience seem related to solid financial gains; veterans in this group report earning a median of $70K.
