Questions answered. What does a regional pilot make after 6 years?

It's that time again. Every year I lay it all out on the table on what I made the previous year. This is by no means gloating as....well regional pilots don't make a lot of money.

I got a pay raise in October 2007 to year 7 pay. I make approximately $42 per hour now.

Total Wages, Tips and other Compensation - $42792.90

Total Federal and State taxes - $4666.01

Total per diem - $4965.58

Total 401K contributions by my employer - $2364.46

Total money in my benefit including hourly pay, per diem and 401K for 2013  - $50,122.94

In 2013 I flew a total of 758 hours. I didn't pick up much extra flying. I'm going to guess maybe 30 hours over the course of the year.  I took almost 4 weeks off for vacation. Overall it was a pretty good year.

Last year I thought I would be Captain within 18 months...I have another 6 months to get a Captain award or I'm going to be wrong. Eh.
