Pilot Career Earnings Model

Simulate Your Future Income


How much will you earn in your lifetime? How much will you accumulate in your employee sponsored qualified retirement plan? FAPA Financial Services’ proprietary and unique Pilot Career Earnings Model provides an estimate of total lifetime earnings based on precise data from collective bargaining agreements at major and regional U.S. airlines.

Combining individual pilot information with our extensive airline pay scale database, we can project lifetime earnings, as well as year by year retirement account totals. What if you change jobs? More than once? What if you retire early? What if you experience higher or lower investment returns? What if your retirement plan contributions change? Our earnings model with embedded seniority ladder projections, is designed with the flexibility to profile your future earnings and retirement account accumulations.


If you know how to spend less than you get, you have the philosopher’s stone.
