    Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel. Today´s topic is the result out my recent video about "10 good reasons why to become a pilot". I got so many comments and complaints, that I should mention the negative aspects of being an airline pilot as well. So this is today´s video topic.
    10 negative mentions on why being an airline pilot can have disadvantages.
    10. Finding a job after flight school
    9. Paying for flight school (Money)
    8. Early wake up
    7. No weekends
    6. Fear of medical examination
    5. Jetlag
    4. Standby Duty
    3. Away from home
    2. Loss of seniority
    1. Homebase and job security
    As I mention in the video, I don´t agree with all the mention points.
    In my opinion, I approach these matters with a positive attitude and deal with it as best as I can. If I would worry, complain and winge every single day about these points how miserable would I feel.
    I know those facts before I choose to become a pilot, and that is still the best choice I´ve made 10 years ago. Sure I get angry if I get called out of standby, but it´s how I approach these disadvantages of this job. Every job has advantages and disadvantages, you´re just gonna have to live with it.
    I hope you enjoy the video, a comment and a thumbs up are highly appreciated.
    Thanks for watching, all the best your "Captain" Joe

Flying has really lost glamour these days. Flight attendants are most likely under pay while pilots most of the time never get pay in full

I like how you made videos on both the good and the bad aspects of being a pilot; it adds to the objectivity :) Mentioning only the positive aspects can make prospective pilots develop too much fantasies and expectations, which might later lead to disappointment. I think it is good that you inform the viewers of both pros and cons.

I think it is dependent on how much the original lessons were, what liscence you're going for, who was issuing the test, what was the reason, etc, etc, etc. It's extremely difficult to give an estimate, so you'll probably have to find out the hard way. Or maybe just try not to fail

You forgot the most destructive aspect of being a pilot: Furlough = start your career over. Seniority roulette. It's all luck based. IF the airlines had a Nation wide seniority list maybe I'd not have hung up the epaulets. So long as the career path is largely based on the survival and growth of 1 company, I'll pass. ALPA needs desperately to modernize. I"m surprised they haven't had an uprising against them yet. I can't imagine this time in my life, with kids, getting furloughed and having to start my pay over as if I just started as a junior FO. Software development (current occupation) is much more flexible from company to company. My skill is valued in the marketplace, and I can command a decent starting salary if I get laid off tomorrow. I'm not just some number, and I refuse to put myself in that position ever again. Good riddance to that industry, until they realize the barbaric and archaic ways of a seniority list tied to 1 company in today's marketplace.

Good day captain, it's been my dream since a kid to become a pilot. My passion, my joy is in the job and whenever I watch your videos on YouTube to be honest I begin to go crazy wanting to be who I want to be. And one of the things you said about paying of fees has been my problem ever since I had this dream but I'm will to take the risk cuz it's my dream job. So please advise me on this issue cuz I still wanna be a pilot no matter how long it takes me. Thank you. Love you.

Jet lag. I live in the UK My natural sleep is go to sleep around 3-4am then wake up around 12-1pm. Then when I want to Australia, my body was 100% in sync after 1day. I felt strange going to sleep at 9pm to take up at 6am.

Here's some more, and I know what I am talking about. 1. Most pilots are stuck at a regional for life no matter how good they are as pilots or spot free their career record is. 2. Most pilots are away from home 18+ nights a month in a dirty hotel. Life sentence. Nobody knows you there. 3. You can lose your first class at any time and it's game over, or months waiting for a special issuance. 4. You have a $100k flight training note to pay off whether you get to be a pilot using it or not (see 3 and 6). 5. It is not a high paying job. Regionals pay relatively low wages. Try paying a training debt and support a family on $42k. 6. You face lifetime jeopardy sim and line check events. Check airman didn't get laid last night and you'll be crying. 7. Expect diminished life expectancy, high melanoma and reduced sexual potency from excess gamma soak. 8. Expect occasional bad apple flight crews you get paired with for days on end. 9. You'll be working holidays while your children wonder why isn't daddy home again this Christmas. 10. 5 hour commutes on both ends of every trip. And if you miss your commute, you don't get paid. 11. A steady diet of backpack food, airport & fast food, and whatever is within walking distance of your dirty hotel. 12. Any airline can go out of business because it is less unstable than other industries. Your seniority number is gone. 13. The cost of a low paying job like this one has a massive loss in compound interest to your 401k, huge loss. 14. Sign on bonuses revert to regular low wages year two on. Airlines say you'll make $60k and conveniently leave that out. 15. Many fleets are outdated aircraft that are warm in summer, cold in winter, high breakdown rates, filthy and ugly. 16. Regionals do essential air service to the harshest climates in America. Walkarounds in searing wind and rain. 17. Aircraft assignment is not assumed even for a day. Think mad dashes with bags thru major airports with no time to shit. 18. Airlines have no problem citing the 117 emergency clause to push tired pilots beyond Part 117 duty limits. 19. Some hotels resemble circuses. If you call out because of lack of sleep you'll hear from the head office and not be paid. 20. That's almost 20. How many more do you need to realize this is not great gig?

I'm not a pilot. I waa lucky to get to know a pilot who retired from United Airlines. This guy had a true passion for flying. He was a Captain and primarily flew 747's. A great guy and I learned a lot about aviation from him. Fairly intense personality. His main fiocus aside from flying was the passengers. This guy didn't take the job lightly, he was a true pro. Probably never a check list he skipped items on and superb pre trip inspections. He is a huge Boeing fan and had a fascination with the 787. I was so impressed with this guy I wanted him to fly the 787. I said I'd write Boeing and ask that he be able to fly the 787. I really at the time had no idea just what was involved in getting qualified to fly different planes. I assumed if it had wings, that guy could fly it. He said, oh I hope you didn't write to Boeing, that would be embarrassing. I didn't, but I thought so highly of that guy.
