Legitimate question, not a troll.  A poster down below complained about being paid $95K for a GOM 14/14 flying job.  My questions is what do you think that job should pay?

If it's an off-shore job jumping from rigs to plateforms all day long, then it should be at least $110,000.  I can't believe that I accepted the $32K 15 years ago, so things are looking up these days!!

As a Gulf of Mexico shelf pilot who gets paid mid 70’s I feel it is worth more. I’m not complaining about my salary as I know just a few years ago it was so much worse (52k to start). I’m just going to look elsewhere now. Before I was waiting to see how much our pay raise was going to be.

Started at $620/Mo, ended $15,000/Mo.

Same experience though quite varied, including travel and living abroad, and corporate here in the states - kinda like a charmed career in my view. 

Had fun.

IMC/IFR offshore only 7 years.

If you did 40 years offshore my hat's off to ya.
