Aviation jobs are more varied than ever before, offering aspiring

pilots many exciting options for a satisfying, lifelong career.

‘Flying for a living’ can mean different things to different people, from a commercial

airline pilot to high altitude operations and mountain rescue. Whether you’re looking for

non-stop adrenaline or the opportunity for world travel, earning a pilot’s license and

pursing one of dozens of aviation career paths can be very rewarding.

So you want to be a pilot. You’ve enrolled in flight school and your pilot training is

underway. But where do you plan to take your aviation career? The possibilities are

endless.

Being a pilot, to many, means flying a commercial airliner. Commercial airline pilots

work for large domestic and international carriers like American Airlines, British Airways

and Southwest Airlines. Regional airline pilots work for airlines based in a single region

like Island Air in Hawaii or Horizon Air in the Pacific Northwest. Some pilots gain

experience and flight hours working for smaller regional airlines before working for a

large airliner.

A private pilot is a general term that stands in contrast to a commercial pilot flying for a

commercial operation. A private pilot may fly only for their own pleasure and travel

needs, transporting family and friends to various destinations. A private pilot’s license

does not permit the pilot to fly for pay. There are fewer flight hours required for a private

pilot’s license than for a commercial pilot’s license.

Corporate pilots, also called business pilots, fly smaller, privately owned planes for

individuals and corporations. They transport executives to business meeting and site

visits across country. Sometimes the corporation owns these corporate planes and the

pilot is an employee of the company. Alternatively, a private jet charter may contract

with the company and the pilot may work directly for the charter company.

Law enforcement, rescue and life saving are a unique category of aviation careers

where adrenaline and a sense of danger can rule the work day. Typically, these jobs

employ helicopter pilots due to their maneuverability.

Search and rescue pilots must complete mountain training and perform at high altitude

in mountainous regions and in inclement weather – think hiker lost during their peak

attempt and backcountry skier.

Air ambulance pilot is another aviation career where lives are on the line. These pilots

transport critical patients and accident victims to emergency rooms much more quickly

than traditional ambulances. They also transport emergency medical personnel who

tend to the patient while the pilot tends to the aircraft.

There are two classifications of police aviation officers – fixed wing airplane pilots and

helicopter pilots. In urban areas, helicopter police assist with traffic control, fugitive

pursuits and riot control. These units also provide additional security at major events

and assist in the deployment of special units like SWAT and counterterrorism.

On the other end of the spectrum, scenic tour pilots take vacationers on aerial tours of

scenic spots. From the Grand Canyon and Hawaiian volcanoes to the Las Vegas strip

and Manhattan, scenic tour pilots take their passengers to places that are not easily

accessed on foot or by car or that simply offer supreme views from the sky.

Other aviation careers include aerial photography, aerial advertising (banner towing),

geological survey, fish and game census, agricultural spraying. In other words, no

matter you are looking for, chances are, you can find it in an aviation career.
