When most people think of civilian pilot jobs, they think of airline pilots ferrying passengers from one airport to another. But the truth is that becoming an airline pilot takes years of dues-paying in other commercial jobs that have nothing to do with airlines. Some of these are obvious, and some are truly unusual. In this article, Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology reviews six types of less well-known pilot jobs you could prepare for in flight school.

It's the dreaded interview question. "So, what would you say are your weaknesses?" You don't want to ignore the question all together, but you also don't want to reply back with, "Well, I tend to miss deadlines a lot." Instead, you try to come up with an answer that sounds like a weakness but is really a strength, such as, "Sometimes I just work too hard -- I'm always coming in early and staying late."

At Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, we know something about what it takes to become a pilot. After all, we’ve been educating and training civilian and military flyers since 1928. Today’s aviation industry is very different from what it was more than eighty years ago. Tomorrow’s aviation industry will be still more different, shaped by technologies now in the testing phase and regulations that have yet to be written. What’s certain about aviation is that it attracts adventurous characters, year after year. Spartan College presents this guide to earning your commercial pilot’s wings, along with career progression options. Step One: Get to Know the FAA The aviation industry in the United States is regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a division of the Department of Transportation. The FAA oversees every aspect of the operation of civilian airspace, from the design and manufacture of aircraft to airport operation. It also confers licenses and certifications on pilots, flight instructors, and aviation maintenance technicians. Over the course of your pilot training, you will prepare for many written, oral, and practical tests administered by the FAA to earn your licenses. If you are serious about becoming a pilot, it’s a good idea to become familiar with the FAA before your first flight school course. Visit FAA.gov to read news, training manuals, and other information related to the aviation industry. Step Two: Get a Medical Exam and Student Pilot Certificate Pilots, especially pilots who wish to fly passenger aircraft someday, need to be in good physical condition. The FAA requires all pilots, including student pilots, to receive a medical examination from an Aviation Medical Examiner (AME). AMEs are private physicians who receive training and authorization from the FAA. You can locate a nearby AME through the FAA’s AME Database at http://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/. You will initially want a Third-Class Medical Certificate, which is required for student pilots, private pilots, and recreational pilots. The AME will check your
