    AoA :wave:, I have some questions regarding GD Pilots of PAF
    (It may sound stupid but here it goes anyway :P)

    First of all, how is a day like in PAF as a Pilot?
    to be more precise, what is the routine of a GD Pilot? What do they do when they're on duty?

    and My 2nd Question is, how many Hours do they fly in a day? or in a Month?

    EDIT: and how much do they get paid per rank?

    Thanks! :)

    Sorry guys, but after Weeks of searching, I found nothing :s but
    A usual day in a Squadron thread (that's the answer to my 1st Question)
    So anyone answer my Remaining Questions please?

    EDIT: and now another Question :D
    I have heard that now only the students of PAF schools can apply for GD Pilots..
    is this true? this is an upsetting news...

    Be patient. I am sure one of the ex-PAF folks will drop a few lines here about your queries.

    majority of successful candidates are from PAF School Sargodha and PAF Lower Topa - I would estimate upto 80%!

    pilots pay-scales can be obtained from any PAF recruitment center. pay scales are much lower than civilian pilots but other benefits like housing, medical, travel etc are all paid for by the PAF.

    PAF flying hours vary depending on what stage of the training one is on!
