become a commercial pilot

Wondering why you should become a commercial pilot?

As you know, at CTI Professional Flight Training, we can help you achieve your flying ambitions if you want to become a commercial pilot. But why should you join this fantastic profession?

  1. No day is the same!

There aren’t many jobs where you can guarantee avoiding that rut of ‘same old, same old’ every day. As a commercial pilot working a variety of schedules, no two days are the same, meaning you get to experience new places, new routines, new people and new challenges every time your turn up for work. That certainly beats a day in the office!

  1. You get to see the world

For most people, seeing the world is something they may only dream of, but become a commercial pilot, and you’ll be doing it your whole career through. Whether you’re discovering new cities or whole new cultures, your job will expand your horizons and leave you with some amazing experiences.

  1. Your friends and family get to see the world too!

Most commercial pilots benefit from incredible discounts for friends and family, meaning that your loved ones will also get to travel to new places at a fraction of the cost. Not only will that give you a feel-good feeling – but it’s also bound to make you the most popular person around!

  1. Enjoy greater job security

Pilots are in high demand, with figures suggesting a need for 617,000 new commercial pilots by 2036. This means greater job security for you if you become a commercial pilot, as many airlines start to see you as hot property.

  1. Stay challenged throughout your career

Achieving your commercial pilot’s license is just the start. This career offers progression through many different levels, from becoming a pilot ground trainer to managing a whole fleet. Each new level brings its own degree of learning, which will keep you challenged and engaged throughout your entire career. What’s more, work your way up, and you could be earning six figures before you know it!

  1. Enjoy ‘work-free’ time off

Commercial pilots work hard, which is why they’re also usually entitled to 1-2 weeks off per month. There aren’t many careers that afford you this much free time to spend with your friends, family or hobbies on a regular basis. And, as your work gets left in the cockpit at the end of every shift, you never need to worry about bringing work home with you!

  1. Spectacular views are part of the job

Does anything beat the view from a cockpit? We don’t think so! But with stunning vistas from your ‘office window’ as standard, you can enjoy them every time you go to work. That’s pretty unique!

If you’re ready to make that step and become a commercial pilot, we’ve got the training for you. Available at both our Florida and Tennessee campuses, we’ll teach you all you need to know for this incredible career. So why not get started today?
