Private pilots are making a lot more money than their pilots in the military, but they do it all from home, according to a recent survey by the Aviation Career Institute.
The survey, which was conducted by the institute and The Aviation Business, surveyed more than 1,000 aviation professionals to see how they make their living.
They found that the median salary for a private pilot was $160,000 per year, and they make $1,400 per hour working full-time.
That’s higher than the average annual income of an airline pilot ($95,000) and is roughly 10 percent higher than what an airline engineer earns ($87,000).
The study also found that private pilots earn significantly more per hour than other aviation professionals, with a median hourly salary of $130,000.
In addition, the study found that most of the pilots surveyed are older than 55, and that the majority have college degrees.
