Have 9000 hours total time
Of those, 8700 should be PIC in type on seaplanes
A minimum of 12000 hours AK time as well a maximum age of 22.
Do all that and find that if you know the right people, everything will work just fine.
Wages have been stagnant for years -- but that's not so in the airline industry.
Pilots and ground crews at the major U.S. airlines are winning huge raises and have locked in more hikes in the years to come.
American Airline (AAL) pilots got a 23% pay hike last year, and United Airlines (UAL) pilots won a 16% pay hike in January of this year. Both are slated for smaller annual raises going forward.
But some employees are fighting for even more.
Delta (DAL) pilots are picketing the company's headquarters Friday to demand a 37% raise over the course of three years, while Southwest (LUV) pilots demonstrated earlier in the week for a 32% hike through 2019.
And its not just pilots who are getting fatter paychecks.
American Airlines reached a deal earlier this month to give 30,000 ground workers raises ranging from 15% to 55%. United ground workers (except the mechanics) ratified a deal earlier this year that gave them a 30% wage increase over five years.
In separate negotiations, United mechanics rejected an offer of a 33% wage hike over seven years. The Teamsters, who represent the mechanics, report it is now close to a tentative agreement.

Being a good farm boy I decided if the plane is broke I'll have to fix it. Farmers hate counting on someone else to keep them operating and getting the job done.
