    Just wanna say thank you for the nice information on pilot job description.

  2. Actual Pilot Actual Pilot

    This information is very inaccurate. No one in Canada or the US starts their first job with an airline. It is like any other industry, just because you have the license does not at all mean you are worthy of employment. It takes most people 10 years of real world flying (no auto pilot) before any reasonable airline will even look at your resume…Getting an interview, that takes A LOT of luck and networking. And EVERYONE starts as a “Co-pilot”. Good luck!

    And another thing…. don’t expect to make any money for the first 12 years.

    The best advise I can give you is to stay away. Go to school for something that allows you to make enough money to buy a share in a single engine piston aircraft and fly it on the weekends. Trust me
