When I graduate I will be a flight instructor making $18/hr working 25-30hrs a week if I am lucky. Once I build up my hours I will be working for a regional airline making about $24k a year starting out, with minimal increases is wage for several years till I make it to a captain position. It won't be till about 10-15 years down the road that I am able to make 100k + per year.
Thats IF you can make Captain for an airline!

This is why I decided to stop trying to be a pilot and switched to Engineering.

I do really miss flying though
