    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

    5:13 happened to my uncle when his airline went out of business. He was captain it was very sound but he couldn't afford to work his way up again so he got a good paying job he didn't enjoy. First-Officer Joe, be careful. I'm sorry but I won't call you Captain until you really are captain. Much respect though!

    • Mike P

      I think the main questions are: Do you like to fly, and is flying what you want to do in the future? If you say yes, I think you should go for it because if you don't try it you will regret it later when it's too late.
      I suggest that you reserve a demo flight with a flight instructor in your nearest flight school and you can try the controls. If you still love it then go for it.
      Of course before starting you have to pass the aviation medical examination and you must be able to hold a Class 1 medical certificate to become an airline pilot.

    I'm working on PPL in Canada and have always dreamt of being an airline pilot since I was 6 years old. Then I started doing PPL and quickly realised that an airline pilot job is kind of a slavery. You pay a lot of money for your licenses, for hours, for everything. You drive a shitty car because you don't have extra money - everything goes to your dream. Then you work as an instructor making hardly enough to live on. And after all that pain you get your job but you are not able to control anything: your time, your personal live just nothing. And you are always afraid to be laid off or fail medical. You always tired. I was thinking about it a lot and figured out one thing: I don't want to be a slave just for being allowed to fly big and fancy planes which you fly manually a few minutes in a flight. I better buy a plane and fly it when I want and where I want.

    There are a lot of the reasons he could have mentioned for not becoming an airline pilot: 11. It can be a VERY, VERY stressful job (weather, traffic, maintenance, approaches and landings that could end your career (and lives) in a split second, and dealing with increasing addicted and/or psychotic passengers) 12. Your entire life and well-being is at the mercy of a scheduler who will screw up your life at the drop of a text 13. Your health can decline quickly: radiation at high altitude, bad food, poor sleep (he mentioned), and yes, stress 14. Furloughs when economy hiccups or fuel prices change 15. Work decades and earn retirement, only to have the airlines drastically cut your pension (Google it - it's already happened to thousands of pilots) 16. Put your marriage at risk due to the lifestyle 17. Miss out on your kid's birthdays, school plays, first steps, proms, high school athletic games, and just about anything else 18. "Pay your dues" for years and years flying RJs or other routes, and finally move up, only to have some merger or other factor steal all of your hard fought career gains

    Joe I stopped my pilot training 10 years ago because of some of the reasons you just mentioned, but sometimes I still regret it. I'm still a private pilot but haven't flown in a long time. I love watching your videos so thanks for bringing some of that joy to my screen.
