On Friday, the U.S. Government Accountability Office released a report on the current and future availability of airline pilots. In its typically cagey language, the GAO said that it found “mixed evidence regarding the extent of a shortage of airline pilots.” The real takeaway: Regional airlines can’t fill their cockpits, and it’s because their pilots earn miserably low pay.

According to data for 14 regional airlines, the average new pilot’s hourly wage is about $24 per hour, the report says. But the Air Line Pilots Association estimates that the average starting salary is even lower than that — $22,500 per year, which for a 40-hour work week equals an hourly rate of $10.75. Unsurprisingly, 11 of the 12 regional airlines the GAO interviewed reported difficulties filling entry-level first-officer vacancies.

“You just can’t find people to work for those wages,” says Helane Becker, a managing director at Cowen and Company who covers airlines.
