Base Pay Scales





Air Evac’s starting base salary is determined utilizing a “Crew Experience Worksheet” (CEW) that takes into consideration total flight time, rotorcraft time, ratings held, night unaided and aided time, turbine time, prior HAA experience, etc.  There are other compensation components that will affect total salary, as well as the potential for career growth: 


Geographic Modifier


Many AEL locations have a geographic modifier, adding a percentage to the base salary that may range from 2% to 20%.  The percentage amount depends on the assigned base location. 


Example:  Using the CEW score, if the initial hire base salary is $68,000 (mid-range) and the assigned base location has a 10% modifier, the resulting base salary is $74,800.


Illinois Base Locations


All Illinois bases have a $5,000 signing bonus and a 20% geographic modifier. Using the example initial hire base salary above and adding the 20% modifier and the $5,000 signing bonus, the first year compensation would be $94,760.


Workover Opportunities


The workover rate is 1.5 times the base salary hourly rate and if applicable, includes the geographic modifier.  Per diem and travel expenses are provided when working at other than your assigned base.  The workover rate also applies to annual recurrent training, as well as IIMC recurrent training (conducted at 4-month intervals.)


Relocation Bonus


$5,000 if you move your permanent residence to within 60 miles of the assigned base and after successful completion of the initial pilot training program.


Base Housing 


All Air Evac bases have company-provided quarters (no cost to you) during a 7-day hitch, both on and off your 12-hour shift.


Employee Referral Bonus Program


$1,000 referral bonus for pilots

$400 referral bonus for medical crew 


Base Pilot Supervisor:  $5,000 stipend in addition to current base salary and if applicable, includes the geographic modifier.


Area Pilot:  $12,000 stipend in addition to current base salary.


Strike Team Pilot:  $22,750 stipend in addition to current base salary. The schedule for Strike Team pilots is a 14/14 rotation. 


Flight Instructor/Check Airman:  Pilots who meet the requirements for Company Flight Instructor, Ground Instructor or Check Airman under the Air Evac FAA-approved Training Program and who are accepted into this program, will receive an annual special assignment pay of $1500 for Instructors or $2500 for Check Airman.  Special assignment pay will be in addition to the current base salary. Flight instructors may also fill in for work over opportunities at bases.
