Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience seems to be a major factor in determining the incomes of Non-Jet Commercial Pilots. The median compensation for relatively untried workers is $42K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $49K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Non-Jet Commercial Pilots make a median salary of $60K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $70K.
