It really depends on so many things, such as seniority, aircraft type and your personal desires. Generally I work four to six days in a row, followed by three to four days off. FAA limits generally prohibit any more than six straight days of work. When I was junior it was hard to get weekends and holidays off, now that I am senior it is relatively easy.
To get a better idea of our schedules take a look at the “Schedules” section, it will really help paint an accurate picture os what our schedules are.
Since all airlines fly 7 days a week it’s pretty safe to say there are pilots flying 7 days a week. There really is no such thing as a typical day for an airline pilot. When I was at ExpressJet we had 1,2,3 and 4 day trips with anywhere from 1-6 flights per day. I’m at Hawaiian now and again there are 1,2,3,4 and 5 day trips with as many as 9 flights in a day. I have friends at Atlas and they can be on the road for up to 17 days flying around the world. I could go on but hopefully you get the idea.
What you get depends on the airline, the airplane, the base and your seniority. Typical is not a word we use often.
