Aviation History for Claremont, NH and Fun Facts for Claremont, NH
A pilot who is a commissioned officer begins at the lowest rank, designated O-1, on the basic military pay chart. This rank is a second lieutenant in the Air Force or Marine Corps, and an ensign in the Navy. Because the basic pay chart cross-references rank and time of a service, an O-1 with less than two years in the military -- the lowest step -- earned $2,829 a month, or $33,948 a year, as of 2012.
