Mr Michael..

Going by the training course and manual, I would say yes… (and I do not speak from experience).

However, going from a VLJ to a Gulfstream, probably 5 or 6 times more complex.

The fact is most aeroplanes fly the same way. throttle, flaps, pull/push stick.. the major difference is the speed they take off/land and the pilots perspective from the cockpit at approach and point of touch down…

However, far more systems create the complexity…. and very simply the 747 has far more systems that can go wrong than a 737.

I am involved in crewing corporate jets, and yes there is a need to sometimes pay pilots differing amounts…

In the case of AF v BA pilots, I haven’t seen the stats but even within BA you have pilots on different contracts…
