Hi all

What are experienced first AC's earning as commercial daily rates in the USA, Canada and Europe.
An experienced 1st in South Africa is earning about R 2000.00 a day which buys you the equivelant of a Schneider 6 x 6 nd filter.

Anyone worked in China or India on there local rates?

Hi Frank,
A common commercial First AC rate in Los Angeles is $650 for 10 hours. Overtime and double time follow for the additional hours worked.

Whoa, thanks for the heads up. I made my 1st short on less than that.
