CBAA Aviation Compensation Study Survey


The Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA) would like to ask for your cooperation in completing a survey as part of the 2022 Aviation Compensation Study, which includes a comprehensive overview of business aviation compensation practices, incentive plans and work conditions, as well as specific industry benchmark positions. This study also includes data on recruitment, turnover, and retention practices.

Compensation packages are a key component in attracting and retaining employees. It is also a key decision-making tool to in ensuring optimal flight departments. Compensation is the foundation of a strong employee value proposition and demonstrates the unique skillset of the workforce within Canada’s business aviation sector.

As the only study in Canada that specifically tracks business aviation as a separate sector, the results of the study will be used to raise awareness of the high-skilled positions that are supported by Canada’s business aviation employers. The results of the study will also help member companies better evaluate their own flight departments.

The figures you provide in the following sections are strictly confidential. Only aggregate survey totals will be published in the final report. Please note that any answers that you provide in this survey will only be viewed by InterVISTAS Consulting’s research team.

We kindly ask that you please complete this survey as soon as possible and no later than July 8, 2022.

The compensation survey consists of two main sections:
  • Primary Compensation Questions - on base salary, total compensation, and bonuses
  • Supplementary Questions - on incentive plans, work conditions, recruitment, turnover, and retention practices

Please note that the information being requested is for calendar year 2021.
