Benefits of Becoming a Pilot
If you have ever wanted to make your office one where you see the world becoming a professional pilot is the best option for you. Being thousands of feet up in the air, watching birds fly by, seeing lightning form in clouds miles away, and overlooking city skylines are only possible by becoming a pilot.
Choosing a career as a pilot is better than ever with the demand for pilots worldwide. Boeing projects that by 2037 the aviation industry will need to supply over 600,000 commercial airline pilots.
