What airline job would you like to hold in the future? Whether you're 12 or 33 you can still answer this question. Gate agent, Pilot, President, CEO, Mechanic etc.

I would personally like to start my own airline and become president, so you can work for me someday if you want!!

What do you think????  Insane


Thanks and Gig Em!

CEO !
As a CEO, you can still be a pilot  Smile

I saw a story once that Korean Air's VP-Cabin Service is still an active cabin crew member!

Upset training Instructor, flying an aerobatic aircraft and getting paid for it, what more could you want.

Pilot would be nice for hobby but not for occupation. Most of all I like the technology behind all aircraft, so aviation engineer would be nice (already have some experience). But at the moment I'm studying to become an engineer sitting in some very dusty office somewhere in a high corner of a hangar, or even worse, somewhere in a dull city (technical head office of a manufacturer).

I hope to come back someday as a ground engineer.

None! I don't want to work for any airline. ATC for me, it's by far the best aviation job out there.

If I would choose the aviation field, I owuld want to be a pilot for the Continental 757 and 777. Still I will probably choose the medical field over that even though I love aviation.

I would like to become a captian on a CRJ-700 or a captian on a EMB-135/145!!! Then after a few years of that, move up to a FO on a large jet with the major Airlines, and then from there Captian. But that takes an entire career. Right now, I would be content to be a captian on a EMB-135/145!!!
