So in this series of posts, I'll be writing about the aviation career field, some of the pros and cons of various flying jobs, the ways one can go about getting into the industry, and some of the pitfalls that await the unwary. Although I try to keep myself well-informed, everything that I say will obviously be colored by my own experience, so I'm depending on those of you with more experience or different backgrounds to add to the information presented here, ie via comments.
This particularly goes for those of you who fly outside the U.S., since the entirety of my flying career has been with employers in the States.
I'm going to organize the posts roughly as follows:
- My Own Experience
- Jobs within the Aviation Field
- Career Paths & Progression
- Pay & Benefits
- Job Stability, or lack thereof
- Getting Started, or Not
- Some Words of Advice
Subject for this post's comments: Is such a series really neccessary or is Sam just feeling a little self-important lately?
Just kidding. Kinda. :-)
