The higher the income, the greater the need and desire. As a result of income derived will remain the same needs and desires to be fulfilled. Similarly to the profession of this one, the pilot will be known fairly high income tens of millions of Indonesian rupiah per month. However, looking at the needs and desires are also growing, whether it be to meet the basic needs or realize such a desire to invest to make this profession should also increase his income in order to achieve that desire. Broadly speaking, the following three efforts could be made by the pilot to be able to increase their incomes.
Choosing to be a contract employee
Many pilots fly strike knowing the salary of foreign pilots employed in the country have a maximum income. This assumption can actually be considered a misnomer because foreign pilots working status only contracted, while the pilots in the country is regarded as an employee that can increase the level of his career, given the benefits, as well as pension funds. The amount of salary received by pilots in the country is only half of the salary of foreign pilots, but not including allowances and old age guarantee that when summed with the salaries of foreign pilots, most likely the end result will be the same and not much different.
Get around the strike action of the pilots who fly because it is causing the airline suffered substantial losses, the airline provide a balanced offer. The pilot decided to stop being a permanent employee and contract workers who choose to be more or less contracted for 1 year with income doubled(together with foreign pilots), but the new work period will be extended if it is performing well and the economic situation is not worse.
Add flight hours
To increase his salary, which can also be done by the pilot is to increase flying hours. With increasing total flight hours, the airline usually will promote pilot positions. For example, previously served as second officer to first officer can increase after 1.5 years of work and more than 3 years into the future will be appointed as the senior first officer. After 4 years in the future with the total hours of flying more than 5000 hours, pilots also have the opportunity to be promoted as captain through a variety of specific tests.
However, the seriousness in adding hours of flying also has a negative side on the health of the pilot, health could be endangered as a result of hours of flying irregular both in day and night. But this has become the choice for the pilot if still want to work in the airline as a permanent employee and want a high salary. To maintain good health, pilots generally very high priority nutritious foods.
Apply at the best airline
Pilot salary in addition influenced by the positions and total flight hours, is also dependent than airline policy. Top airline would have a more attractive offer than the usual airline. However, in order to enter and work in the best airline is not easy, basically pilot must have qualifications that support in order to compete with other pilots, one of whom had pocketed hours of flying targeted by the airline.
Entering the world of work first as a professional pilot is already earn fairly high. But in a way or the right choice, the pilot can increase the income becomes higher. Best key is to select the most appropriate way, not just for a while but also in order to ensuring the career path in the future so that the profession can be occupied comfortably.
