Why should you chose aviation industry?

When the aviation industry first took off a few decades ago, it was considered one of the most prestigious and glamorous industries to work in. The pilots took pride in flying powerful machines at staggering heights of 30,000 feet while air stewards took pleasure in serving passengers. Most of these practices remain the same even today, except with the addition of bigger and better aircrafts.

The aviation industry is a fast paced one and is a lifelong dream from many. Whether you want to show off your badges as a pilot or visit new cities everyday, you can achieve everything in the aviation industry.

Dynamic and ever changing environment

While most look for a steady career with fixed work timings and steady flow of income, others aim higher, literally! Regardless of which part of the aviation industry you join, you will hardly be working a 9 to 5 shift. If a sense of adventure is what you are looking for, the aviation industry is perfect for you.

With changing work timings, visiting new places and meeting interesting people, you can be assured that your career will not be just a desk job. Interestingly, this also means that your working hours and holiday schedules are flexible. Enjoying unexpected vacations and working hard on a stretch are both part of the aviation industry, making it a worthwhile career. You will also quickly make friends with your crew members, who keep changing with every flight. If change is your motto, aviation is your life!

Attractive pay packages and perks

The aviation industry is not just glamorous on the surface; it also provides the perks. Along with impressive pay packages that increase over the years, you will also benefit from other perks like life insurance, yearly bonuses, travel pay and vacation pay. Many aviation companies offer these bonuses on certain pre-conditions like working for a fixed time or completion of the contract. If you choose the right airline, you can enjoy these perks and more.

See the world on the job

Traveling the world is a dream many have but only few accomplish it. By working in the aviation industry, you can see the world and get paid for it! Working with an airline is a great opportunity to travel to many corners of the world without spending a bomb on tickets. Some airline companies also offer exotic vacations for employees. If seeing the world is on your bucket list, consider a career in aviation and visit a new country every week.

The pure pleasure of flying

The quiet roar of the propellers, the powerful engines and the sheer magnificence of an aircraft is an overwhelming sight. The thrill of taking off on a new journey and getting people to new cities is something that cannot be achieved outside the aviation industry. Pilots have enjoyed the unbridled pleasure of handling machines worth millions and visiting different corners of the world, and so could you.

An Aircraft in each household – a dream or reality?

Aviation has completed over a century of dynamic growth and advancement, resulting in the present air transportation system dominated by the commercial airline industry’s hub and spoke system. The initial 50 years of aviation were a chaotic, rapid evolutionary process involving disruptive technologies that required frequent modifications. The second half century produced a stable evolutionary optimization of services based on achieving an objective function  of economical operations. In the ongoing 50 years of what I call Aviation 3.0, there is a potential for aviation to transform itself into a more robust, scalable, adaptive, secure, safe, affordable, convenient, efficient, and environment friendly system. Read more about environment friendly aviation initiative in my “Green is the future of Aviation as Well” article.

However, such a global optimization requires not only the ability to perform analysis of larger system of system impacts, but also the ability to consider new value propositions that involve different infrastructures and business models that those which are currently the norm of the present aviation industry. While many obstacles exist, including technology, regulations, and perception; the Aviation 3.0 has the potential to mirror other on-demand market revolutions that have taken place over the past half century.

Highly successful innovators like Henry Ford and even Wright brothers believed that aviation would one day be capable of reaching an everyday impact in our daily lives. Yet after many years of rather empty promises, ranging from road-able aircraft to a a helicopter in every garage, the aviation community remains transfixed in a highly centralized world of very expensive, and not cost efficient aircraft.

Pessimists of the personal aircraft vision say that the aviation market evolution has brought us to the logical solution. Optimists of the vision respond that government regulations and the conservatism of the aerospace community have inhibited the industry. Both are correct, and as is typically the case, the answer lies somewhere in the middle. However, with a long-term viewpoint of demand and utility, it seems inevitable that in the very near future small aircraft will have a far more significant daily impact in many of our daily activities.

Sport pilot regulations, training and certification of the pilots, and the sport aircraft are a result of such an initiative from the government and the industry. If you desire to experience the spirit of what I am trying to express here in this article, find some time during your busy lives, visit your local GA airport, and ask someone in one of those FBOs to arrange for a demo flight for you in one of their Sport Aircraft. And then come back here and give this article and second read. And leave me a comment here underneath.
