Pilot Careers Vs. Other Professional Careers

Airline Pilot Careers Vs. Other Professions, Occupations, Careers-

become a pilot

Why a pilot career can prove to be a wise career choice when compared to other major professional occupations such as a doctor, lawyer, or dentist. General comparisons of education costs and expenses, length of school and training, to time frames in school and/or training before able to actually work as a paid professional…

Promising news for aspiring commercial pilots and ATP pilots. As their has and will always be negative media attention on airlines, pilot careers, and pilot pay, the actual facts of the matter can actually attract some positive attention to those interested in starting a professional pilot career.

What aspiring pilots need to understand is that commercial and ATP pilots do make decent money if they can stick with it for 5,10,15 years with the same airline or are fortunate to transfer to one that accepts pilot transfers without starting all over from the bottom of the pilot pool. In comparison to any other decent paying occupation, traditionally you would need to graduate from college with either a 4,8,12 year degree(s) to make over $100,000 per year.

With becoming a commercial pilot or ATP pilot , you can very well complete all of your pilot training in a matter of 2- 3 years if motivated, of which, half of that time you could be working as a certified flight instructor gaining additional flight hours towards your ATP certificate while receiving payment for training new pilots.

Pilots at major airlines receive upwards of $200k+ per year for flying big jumbo jets, are restricted to the amount of flight time they can work per week/per month, and they also receive numerous other benefits and perks. The problem is being able to work with an airline for that long in hopes that the airline does not re-structure, merge, or go under to the dtriment of their pilots. There are a plethora of extenuating circumstances that numerous pilots have to endure in terms of “negatives” of the aviation industry, but is this not very similar to any other occupation? Doctors?, Lawyers?, Dentists?

How long do these types of professionals go to school for before they can start working in their fields as licensed professionals?

How much do they make per year while going to school to receive their diplomas?

How much do they make right out of grad school?

As you can see these are examples of “OCCUPATIONS” that typically pay $100k+ per year, but only after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on education within an 4,8, or 12+ year time frame of receiving said education.

Do you see the connections when comparing the pilot career to that of any other major career? There is additional education and training, additional education costs, additional time frames of education and training, the major differences in time frames from training to be be able to work in professions, career supply and demand( there are plenty of doctors, lawyers, and dentists, but the world is in desparate need of qualified pilots), etc.

Not every pilot, doctor, lawyer, or dentist is going to make a gazillion dollars, especially right out of grad school or training. Eventually though, each professional will more than likely end up making a decent amount of money after 10+ years of working in their career. The major difference is the amount of time a pilot has at working in the real world receiving a paycheck while earning more hands on experience years before most other professions are able to do so. Life is what we make of it, largely dependent on the career decisions we make within the industry we want to work in, along with the network of connections we have, current life situations, and the opportunities that may present themselves at any given time within our occupational travels.
