THE ANNUAL ROTORCRAFT PRO U.S. PILOT SALARY & BENEFITS SURVEY 2020—2021


Rotorcraft Pro’s annual U.S. Pilot Salary & Benefits Survey was initially launched seven years ago in an effort to monitor and report trends on the salaries of pilots in the industry. Traditionally, surveys were sent directly to employers via snail mail in ballot form, then collected and tabulated. This old method did provide interesting results, but because employers are reluctant to reveal the exact salaries and benefits they provide, the sampling could be rather small and probably wasn’t always representative of the larger whole.


Online technologies have given us the ability to survey many working pilots and their employers, thus generating more participation throughout the industry. This year’s survey had excellent participation and obtained the latest information on helicopter pilots:


• What are their qualifications?


• What do they fly? •


In what sector do they fly?


• What ratings do they have? • How much money do they make? •


INSIGHT: 6% of respondents are U.S. pilots working as expats in overseas markets Respondents by years in industry: What type of benefits do they receive?


We think you’ll find the answers to these questions revealing. The goal was for Rotorcraft Pro to interact with our readers in the industry by focusing on two main questions:


• How much do helicopter pilots earn while plying their trade?





Are helicopter pilots generally satisfied with their place in the industry?


The answer to the first question is fairly easy to gather; all it requires is collecting and analyzing data. However, the second question is more personal. In addition to comparative analysis, that answer also requires introspection. Both employers and pilots want to know where they stand in relation to their peers in the industry. We hope our results will help you find answers for your specific situation.


Respondents by flight-hours experience: Who Took the Survey?


Hundreds of pilots took our survey, and they came from all sectors of the industry including EMS, offshore oil support, tours, electronic news gathering, utility/ lifting, law enforcement, firefighting, SAR, ag/spraying, corporate (business & private owner), training, and multi-type flying. Here’s the breakdown:
