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. Retirement and benefit packages for pilots often exceed those found in other professions. Such high earnings and excellent perks are some of the best parts of being a pilot.
Aviation is one of the most thrilling careers. It offers the chance to travel the world, to see famous landmarks, and to glimpse natural wonders that many people can only dream of. However, running maintenance on airplanes requires training, skill, hard work, and dedication. Here is what you should expect at aviation school.
