Your Aviation Career Starts Here

Dear Fellow Pilot,

Wishing You a Very Happy Take Off  !

Before you take decision to become an International Airlines 

Pilot you must read following dos and don't for Pilots.

We have included this section to help and explain the Pilot's opportunities available to those Trainees who continue to work towards the Professional Pilot License level, and there after how to get about with their "way forward" plans. 
We have also thought it prudent to include some of the many pitfalls or setbacks that await the financially unwary in what is otherwise a very loving Profession. 

Every country has its own civil Aviation Department who manages Aviation 

activities. You must make sure here we are talking about only Civil Aviation industry Not defence or military Flying. If you are planning to become a Fighter Pilot, Sorry we also can't help you much.

Why should you become a Professional Pilot ?

- Passion
- Glamour
- Reputation
- Career
- Born Pilot [ Childhood Desire ] 

Before you begin

Before you embark, it is most important that you get an assessment from your country's "Civil Aviation Dept;" about the recognition of the license you are hoping to get, Is the License fully recognized by your civil aviation when you 

return back home., ..? Also read CAR [ Civil Aviation requirment ] throughly.

Know your Certificates :

International Pilot Training Industry

Aviation worldwide is a recurring market and the industry is affected predominantly by economics, politics and some part of the globe with acute terrorism..ect. 9/11 had a negative impact on the Airline industry, while in other regions tourism sustained and some picked up and all the local Airlines and charter companies fared rather well...Outside an Airline  Not all Pilots choose an Airline career. There are many other specialties just as rewarding. Other areas available are crop 

spraying, although I don't recommend it if you intend going the Airline route. 


Obviously this is a difficult subject to generalise on as salaries vary extensively around the world. Crop spraying is renowned as being a well paid job but this will be cyclically dependant on the seasons. 

Internationally  Salary of the Second Officer range between USD $ 600 per month to USD $ 1500 per month  First Officer USD $ 1000 per month to USD $ 3500 per month  and for a Captain between USD $ 2000 per month to USD $ 8500 per month . The salary depends on the Airline you fly and the number of hours / years of service. Normally the period of transition from a First Officer to a Captain is 5-15 years. Small and
developing countries like Nepal, Burma pay least Salaries and Countries like Africa, Canada pay best Salaries in the world.

Few fortunate Pilots become a Captain in 2-5 years too. Similarly Pilot salaries have drasticasllly fallen down after the shut down of many small n medium size Airlines.

Job Prospects for Pilots

Due to Global Reccession, Aviation Industry is going through a rough phase. But, with the economy growing consistently and increasing purchasing power of people across the Globe the Aviation industry is bound to grow. The importance of time over money is key to making a transition from the railways to Airlines as a primary mode of transport. Flying however is a universal skill and once you have a few thousand hours under the belt, the world is open with opportunities.

Last but not least... 

Take off is optional but landing is compulsory..
