Hopefully there's someone here who can answer a quick question for me... How much should a brand new "pilot" joining an established aerial company be expected to earn (average basic annual salary)? I'm considering leaving the military soon, with the world of jobs opening up to me, I would absolutely love to work in the "drone" industry. The problem is, is that it's very hard to find out what exactly you could earn. I know I know...follow your heart and do what you love, what does money matter? Well when you have to sell the idea to the wife, facts and figures aid the argument. Thank you for any help. This is for the UK by the way (though it would be interesting to see what it's like for other countries too).
