Flight Training Coordinator

You might expect a pilot to make six figures, but perhaps not a flight training coordinator. But flight training coordinators have an important job – they research and develop flight training programs for an organization, including classroom lessons and simulator sessions. It could be for a commercial or private carrier or training school or an aerospace company. The median salary for flight training coordinators is $118,000 but can go above $200,000 for the top 10 percent, according to Salary.com.
