    What does it pay, just out of curiosity?

Guess you have to be 37 years of younger (for some reason classified as a Fire Fighting job and not a pilot). Sounds like if you have military time, they may pro-rate that.

    A hundred years ago, this was a highly sought after job that was hard to get. I know, I tried. I really enjoyed talking to Henny, and would like to pass along that if you can get past all the red tape, this may really be worth checking out.

    Annual pay for GS-11 Step 1 with locality pay is $62,236 and GS-12 Step 10 is $96,978. Experience and qualifications determine which step and level you start at.

    There’s still time for me to get qualified! (Not in this hiring round but next one perhaps...)

    Well Amy, unless the USFS raises the minimum age to at least 45, or gives up and sells the airplanes and contract out the flying, I bet that job will be there for you!
