An airline pilot has one of the best jobs in the world. Besides a chance to travel the world and explore amazing foreign cultures, pilots can make a solid salary. First year salaries range from $25,000 to over $50,000 per year. Your annual salary could grow to nearly $200-300,000 if you work for a company for over 10-15 years.
