Is being a pilot bad for relationships?

I told a relative that works in the aviation business that I would love a pilot carrier, and he gave me a sour speech saying that I would be very stupid trading a carrier in Engineering with a carrier as a pilot (of course he doesn`t say that to the pilots that he hires!). He also said that my relationships would be a mess, because of my constant travels (same comment as above). Well, I would be doing something that I love and making enough money to survive, but all of my past relationships where a mess to begin with and since I am already so problematic (even tough I`m very romantic, I do everything wrong) I`m worried that there would be no hope for me if I was a pilot. Or am I wrong?

What are the best aviation subjects to start an aviation website with?


Really depends who you think your audience is. Lay people may just want to know how a plane flys or why certain things happen on commercial flights. Pilots may want to learn about skills/ratings they havent acquired yet, recent incidents.

PILOTS I NEED HELP!!!?


There are many good schools in the UK and CAE is a good one if money is no object. If you have a tight budget then you could consider some of the multitude of other training establishment, certainly up to PPL level. The downside to learning in the UK is that it can be a little slow and frustrating at times due to the inclement weather. However, don't be put off by that since you will learn significantly more about flying in the weather we have in the UK than any of the "fair weather fairies" that learnt in a climate of continual sunshine. When the time comes and you get your commercial pilot job, your new employer won't be too pleased if you told them you can only fly when the sun is shinning. learning to fly in the UK gives you a good grounding and experience that you can take with you anywhere in the world.

Can working as a reserve police officer improve your radio communication skills when you plan to be a pilot?


Only in the practice of thinking of what you need to say before you key the mic. Possibly in being able to understand incoming transmissions also, but that won't help too much unless you have an idea of what kind of calls you can expect in each circumstance so that you can deal with some of the rapid fire controllers out there.

Is being a job quitter common in the pilots' world?


The answer is a bit complex. To a degree, what you hear is correct - but it does not quite mean what you might otherwise think it means.

Consider your first job (maybe while in high school), working the drive-thru at McDonalds. It's a honest job, but most folks (especially youngsters) don't intend to do it for the rest of their lives. The expectations are that you will change jobs a number of times (hopefully for better jobs with better pay) before you are finally established in a career. Pilots are in a similar situation.

For many pilot jobs, especially with getting to the airlines, it is all about the hours. Those hours represent both experience (and some hours are better than other - twin engine hours are better than single, and jet is better than piston). But paying for the hours yourself is beyond the reach of most people. So pilots who want a career with the airlines usually have to start at the bottom. They scrape up enough money to get their commercial license and instructor rating, and start instructing - often in a rental plane older than they are, and for so little money that they too are working the drive-thru at McDonalds.

They accumulate enough hours (and contacts) to start helping out with late night freight delivery (called being a freight dog). Maybe get some charter work. Than a full time charter job. Move up from there to a small regional carrier or one of the charter jet companies. Then finally, if they are lucky, to the majors. And yes, this means changing jobs several times.

Now understand, some pilots love instructing and may do that for their entire time. But for most, instructing and hauling freight and the rest are just stepping stones to their "dream job."

Once with a major carrier they typically stay with that carrier if at all possible. Within the carrier, the pay and job quality and other perks are determined to a large degree by seniority. Switch to another carrier and you may lose all that hard earned seniority. [Pilots generally hate mergers and acquisitions, since that may affect their seniority, without them having any choice in the matter.]

So yes, a freshly licensed commercial pilot may indeed change jobs a number of times on the way up - but probably no worse than a lot of other career paths.

Serious flat earth question considering avivation?


I recently browsed a forum where this was debated by the FE believers vs normal OE people. (Obloid Earth).
The FE'ers simply believe that photos, videos etc are hoaxes. :))

Why do all transmissions between air traffic controllers and pilots have to be in English?


English has been established by the ICAO as the universal language of aviation. It was necessary to establish one language for international flights to ensure safe and understandable communications world wide.

What does Air Traffic Controllers mean when they say "12 o'clock" to a pilot? or 6 o'clock ?


it is the relative direction around the aircraft using a clock face. 12 oclock is in front of the pilot, 6 oclock behind. 3 oclock to the right etc. it is also used with high, level or low. for example, a contact off to the right and above the flight level of the pilots aircraft would be 2 oclock high.

Am I too late to become an airline pilot?


Many colleges offer flight training. Two that come to mind are UND and University of Cincinnati but there are many others. You might look into that as most airlines want a degree also. Regional airlines pay is garbage but you get raises pretty quickly as your time builds.

Question regarding aviation.?


Embry Riddle is one of the most expensive colleges you can attend for flight. There are many others such as University of Cincinnati and University of North Dakota that offer college programs in flight and aviation. Airlines do want college degrees so it's really a pretty good idea. I'd check out tuitions at other colleges that offer aviation.
