There are many commercial pilot jobs. Different people have different interests, and will therefore pursue a variety of career paths.One popular choice, especially in North America is becoming a bush pilot. The first step is usually obtaining a float rating. This allows the holder to fly an aircraft off of lakes or rivers. There is a new set of challenges in flying a float plane such as glassy water take-offs and landings, or landing and taking off on rough water.
Float planes fly people and supplies into remote areas not accessible by road. This provides an exciting life for those with the right qualifications. Another popular choice, especially among people starting out their career is to become a flight instructor. This involves teaching people to fly; training people for their private, commercial, and more advanced flight ratings. Teaching ground school and teaching students on flight simulators is often part of the job. One must complete a flight instructor’s rating to pursue this career.
Although the pay is often not great at first, many say this is the most enjoyable part of their career.Some people become charter pilots, flying people and sometimes cargo to various locations. Twin piston engine aircraft, or light turbo-props such as the King Air are often used. A multi-engine rating and an instrument rating are required for this position. A few graduates of flight schools become charter pilots as their first job, while others become flight instructors or bush pilots first. For many pilots, this is their final step before the airlines; while others become training captains or even chief pilots for charter companies.
For other pilots, becoming a corporate pilot is their career goal. This usually involves starting out with smaller business jets such as the Lear jet, and flying executives to various cities. One can work their way up to larger business jets such as the Gulfstream, which fly across the oceans. What is so appealing in this career is that the pilot will go to many interesting places, often on short notice, unlike the strict schedule followed by the airlines. A job as a corporate pilot is not usually the pilot’s first job; he or she must usually follow any of the previously mentioned jobs and build experience before obtaining this position. Well worth the effort for those who want it.
There are many career paths in the aviation industry,depending upon one’s interests. With the industry poised for record growth, there will be more opportunities in all areas of the industry than ever before.
