This paper makes a comparison of compensation of military pilots and their contemporaries who are employed as pilots for civil air carriers. It also examines pilot manpower requirements in commercial aviation and estimated future trends of such requirements in the industry. Both areas are studied from the viewpoint of a "composite" military pilot completing his initial period of obligated service after flight training.
