Commercial pilots will make around Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 150,000 a month. Their salary will depend upon their experience as well as the airline they are working with.

Pros about Airlines Sector Jobs

The biggest perk pilots or any other person in the aviation industry will get is that they will get the chance to visit many places. Apart from this, they will also be given a free ticket (s) to go to places of their choice. Besides from being a very attractive job, the salary of this industry is also very high. Individuals will get the chance to meet famous people, stay at luxurious hotels and enjoy parties. As airlines don’t wish their employees to be late, they will give them pick up and drop facilities. Even the travel expenses of their employees will be seen into by the airlines.

Cons about Airlines Sector Jobs

Every job will have its negative aspects. The same is true in the case of airline jobs. The biggest worry most individuals face is that they will have to stay away from home for a long time.  The job of a person will start and end according to the schedule or tour of a specific flight. People won’t be able to go home after work like in other jobs.

Another drawback of a career with the airlines is that there will not be any benefits available for the employees. Most of them will be taken in on a contract basis. This means that the employees will have to pay their own medical insurance. On top of this, retirement plan won’t be accessible for them. Uncertainty about the job is also another major drawback about jobs in the airline sector. Ultimately, one will be able to call a job with the airlines as combination of hard work with good salary packages but one with a no-cost adventure.
