When it comes to flying whether you are an airline pilot or a flight attendent you are probably looking for a job that makes you the kind of money you can use to support your family. With all the things that are being said about the commercial airlines and the ways in which their employees are having to work two and three jobs in order to support their family or apply for food stamps just to get by. This shows an absolute level of disrespect for those who have to go through schooling to train for such a position and in many cases who have had to take out student loans in order to get through school.
As a result more and more people are staying away from a career in aeronautics and are moving to other more lucrative fields. It is a shame. For those who are either already in the field or who are looking into a career that takes them all over the world then there is always the consideration of going to the private charter industry and staying away from the commercial airline industry.
In the private charter industry you will be given not only more respect but more money as well. You will of course be expected to be top notch as private charter companies operate well above the commercial industry and FAA standards. Of course, because this industry is so fast paced and high end you will be expected to fly on a moment’s notice but in the end you will be well compensated for the job you do and the level of responsibility you have.
Most private charter companies will only hire experienced pilots so chances are you will have to work in the commercial airline industry for a period of time before you will be able to get on with one of these companies but it is a worthwhile goal to strive for. Private charter pilots make a nice salary and get to travel all over the world. Being able to do what you love and to be amply compensated for it is one of the greatest gifts in the world.
Stop taking the abuse of the commercial airlines and start making the money you deserve to make for the responsibility of taking other people’s lives into your own hands by being a pilot. The private charter industry not only understands the importance of your job but they are willing to compensate you for it.
