I love being a pilot

I fly as a captain for a major airline

This phenomenal job allows me a lot of time off, while having the ability to see the world, meet new people, and have fun experiences. Flying the jet is actually the most fun, however all of the little parts from preparing for the flight, monitoring changes, helping passengers, and using your knowledge and skills to be ready for the ‘what-if’s’ is a wonderful feeling. The challenges of maneuvering a 450,000lb tricycle in the air and getting to some other part of the world is truly exciting. I am so glad I get to call this ‘work’.

eing a pilot means a lot of schedule flexibility with a lot of time off.

Many people believe that pilots work a lot because they travel overnight. I am home more days by far than I am gone.
