Description Back Cover :
Make your aviation career take off ...
The strong economy is rubbing off on the aviation industry: pilot starts and airline hires are on the upswing. And with half the current pilot roster at major airlines set to retire by 2010, career opportunities are tremendous! Making the most of them is what the Professional Pilot Career Guide is all about.

This essential resource gives you a complete, top-to-bottom survey of flying opportunities -- including the airlines, corporate and charter flying, aircraft ferrying (both domestic and transatlantic), and even flight instruction.

Career pilot Robert Mark dispenses goal-achieving tips on nearly every aviation-career decision, moving you from private pilot to the ranks of a professional aviator. Here youll find coverage of ratings -- including practical test standards -- as well as valuable pointers on the job hunt, networking, what you need to know about regional airlines, the majors, and more. The Professional Pilot Career Guide features:

  • Numerous revealing, in-depth personal interviews with pilots who tell how they made it -- and what employers are looking for.
  • A list of 198 interview questions applicants might be asked and tips on the 10 most frequent mistakes they make -- plus Internet resrouces that can speed your search for job-related information.
  • A real-world look at what its like to fly for the airlines, a corporation, or for a charter company -- including insights into pay, benefits, types of aircraft flown, and future prospects.
  • Reviews of the major employment and training companies and pilot organizations throughout the world, such as the Airline Pilots Association.

If youre serious about flying for a living, and want to make your mark in the fast-expanding aviation industry, let the Professional Pilot Career Guide become part of your successful career plan.
