1. Awesome! But how do you read that? Is the bonus actually 75k or 125k or is it the difference between that amount and base pay? I would have to imagine it is the latter. Congratulations either way.

    1. Hi Lucas! For F-18 (VFA) pilots, the bonus is $125,000 over 5 years, so they receive $25,000 additional pay per year for signing on for those extra 5 years. I hope you and your family are doing well, Lucas!

  2. Ahh, that makes sense. Well congrats on the bonus. It is well deserved and really not enough for all the time you and Michael have given.

    My family is well. Just sorting through the changes that may come to our life if I continue on the path I am on. A bit hard on my wife, but we’re moving forward. But thanks for your support. I make sure to read your blog every day, even if I don’t comment very much. Good luck and safe travels on making your way back home in the near future.
