Currently, a newly hired Junior First Officer earns about 1–1.5 lakhs per month in almost all airlines. After a year or more experience, a first officer receives approximately 3 lacs per month. After obtaining an ATPL, you will be promoted to senior first officer and then captain, with a monthly salary of 5–7 lacs.
But, before you can get these, you must first go through a lengthy and expensive training program. It’s not as easy as it seems to become a pilot. It involves many government related tasks which take a lot of time. And your entire career depends on your health; if you become medically ill, you may not fly anymore. So, take care of your wellbeing foremost.
