you have to work your way up that career ladder, but i have heard of up to $290,000 AU per year. In New Zealand, the pilot averages anywhere from $90,000 to $250,000 a year, depending on what job it is, and how many hours your working. For example, if your working for an airline doing regional domestic and getting $75 an hour and getting eight hours a day, working 340 days out of 365 then you would average $204,000.
