I think the big downside to the job is you tend to get abused and made to ride a plane for days on end.
Pretty much sums it up, Atlas/Polar, World, Kalitta, Gemini...they all end the day riding for days on end. I recently finished out a 52 hour ride around the middle east and Africa. Sounds like an adventure at the start (which it really is) but even the biggest aviation enthusiast wants nothing to do with the airplane after 52 hours.
But something has to be said about watching your plane rotate and knowing that it was your handy work that got it to that point...
FXRA, great to be here. If you choose to cross over to the darkside, let me know.
