I am relatively new to this forum, but I have appreciated everyone input! Since I’m new, a little background on myself is I always loved flying/aviation. My Brother is a pilot, did his schooling at Spartan aeronautics in Tulsa, OK. We grew up in Seattle Wa so naturally we were into planes. My mom worked at Boeing building the overhead panels for the 767, and my uncle is one of the managing directors for the 747 project, aviation is literally in my blood! That being said, I am in the process of getting my stuff together to go to ATP in the next couple of months in Dallas and hopefully flight instruct after I’m done. My question is what should I expect in pay while I flight instruct for ATP? I know some instructors in the DFW area that make roughly $40-50/hr but its not that consistent due to the amount of students at their facility. I know from their website (ATP) and speaking with others that it really depends on flights hours per month, but considering that most of us would fly as much as we possibly can what is a realistic annual income during instructing. I currently work for American airlines and would be suspending employment to go after this. I am married so, above all else I want to take care of my family first.
