Commercial Pilots: Do You Like Your Job?

Mon Oct 30, 2006 12:08 pm

I checked and found nothing so here it goes. Commercial pilots who use this forum as a means to spread your wonderful knowledge, do you like your job and do you suggest to other people who have shown an interest in commercial flight to go pursue their dreams?
Flying you to your destination; your girlfriend to her dreams.

In my case, yes, I like my job and yes, I encourage those people who are interested to consider flying as a career.

There are many hassles and obstacles, but I enjoy the challenge of every flight. I often say that the same flight or trip with the same plane and crew has different challenges on different days. Again, I really enjoy the multi-faceted challenge that professional flying presents.

Wouldn't trade my pilots license for anything. It's peaceful up there, just you and the sky. It's beautiful.

From what I have heard, yes most love their job... just not the industry.
