Contract Pilot Invoice Template

Posted by on January 30, 2010 3 Comments Category : Flight Instructor Blog Tags : ,

One of the more exciting things about learning to fly is the day when people start paying you for your pilot services!  I could dedicate an entire site to discussing ways you can get paid to fly, but one of easiest  and most popular ways is by becoming a contract pilot.   As a contract pilot you get paid a fixed pre-determined rate for pilot services rendered.   A popular position for pilots just starting out may be flying right seat in a King Air or another large twin engine aircraft.  In fact, there are many pilots who have found it very lucrative to forgo salaried positions with one company and work as an independent contract pilot for many different companies.  The advantage being of course that you can set your own schedule and negotiate your own rate with each company.  In essence these pilots are working for themselves and providing professional services that they have to market and promote.

I was creating a contract pilot invoice recently and found that they were not any contract pilot invoice templates available online so I created one!   Here is a sample template you can use when filing out your own contract pilot invoice:

    I’m wondering if you could point me to a website exclusive to Pilots looking for contract work?
    I’m currently instructing in the NE & would like to pursue a more steady & lucrative environment.
    Thank You,

    There are a few out there, but I suggest http://www.ClimbTo350.com They’ve got a huge job board and you can post your resume just to see if anybody bites. The bad news: they charge about $14 per month, so get in and get out as soon as you have a job lined up.

    I made a free tool to help with my own invoices when I go on trips: pilotinvoices.com. Easy emailing to clients, reports, currency conversion and more!
