Popaloops Posted July 19, 2005 Report Share Posted July 19, 2005 Well, I have been well aware of this for years, how tough it is to get a flying job. If one is so fortunate to get that first great opportunity, it will more than likeley peel them away from there signigicant other months on end. Well, I have been thinking about being a pilot for the past 2 years or so. Everytime I read about the " kiss your girlfriend goodbye " I tend to shy from the of being a pilot. The career and the machines just keep me so facsinated that I wish ( * YES and I say wish * ) one low timer could land a jbo where he was not pulled apart from his loved ones months on end. Yes, I know, if it were easy, everyone would be doing it. Understandable. What I want to ask all you fine pilots out there, is any advice on a career that would put my in the industry and as well as being with my family. Obviously being a pilot is not going to be so kind on me for the first few years. Is there anything else I can shoot for to at least be a part of the aviation industry that is more family oriented? Just need to get it all figured out before my brain explodes. Anyways, maybe im barking up the wrong tree, but any advice negative or postive would be much appreciated. Possibly even stories about how you yourself got into it. Thanks. :up: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
