Central Flying Academy Why Become A Pilot
10 Reasons You Should Be A Pilot
Thinking about becoming a pilot? Here are 10 reasons you should start right now.
10) Nothing beats your first solo flight.
The minute you lift off the ground, you realize you're the only person that can bring the plane back to the ground safely. And when you touch down, you realize you've accomplished something very few people have.
9) You learn how to make good decisions.
You need to understand situations and make decisions based on the information you have available to you. You'll also quickly understand your limits, and what it takes to improve them.
8) Flying can lead to some incredible careers.
Most people think of being an airline pilot as the only flying career, but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to aviation.
7) How about this for a destination?
It doesn't matter if you're flying around your state or around the world, you'll get to see things like never before.
6) You're part of an elite club.
In the US, about .2% of the population has their pilot's license. If you want to stand out from the crowd, it's a great way to do it.
5) People think this is your job.
It doesn't matter what you fly, most people will think you're pretty much amazing.
4) You can share it with friends and family.
There's nothing quite like showing off your city, or taking friends and family to a new destination.
3) It's challenging.
If flying wasn't challenging, it wouldn't be nearly as rewarding. And when you have a bad day, it makes those good days in the air that much better.
2) It's who you are.
For most pilots out there, flying is a longtime, if not lifetime, dream.
1) Up here, you have the best view in the world.
