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 Background track: Stellardone -Airglow Copyright belong to Any copying of this video material will be prosecuted and have legal consequences.

The only real downside to me is the economy affecting whether or not you have a job. That is stressful, but it’s like most industries anyway. No one is safe from an economy crash 🤷🏻‍♀️

I think the question has to be asked an aviation medical examiner, and a medical examination is needed.

You can also consider to be a corporate pilot, cargo pilot, flight instructor or maybe a helicopter pilot.

2:25 About the medical, would I still be able to become a pilot if I have autism? It doesn’t affect me much, but it just fears me that I won’t be able to become a pilot.

I am class1 hgv driver. My starting window is between 2.30am-5.30am I work every weekend, bank holidays, festive periods as that's the busiest days for transport. I am self employed so no sick pay or holiday. In 3 years time I change job 5times - different locations. Apart from "jet lag" I can thick all the boxes😂 series thinking of going for ppl first and than...etc I think I can manage finances but what scared me the worst is the difficulty of finding a job (to build type rating) after all that effort you put in to training.

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!

Actually I am a girl and I want to become an airline pilot. I have always wanted to become an airline pilot, since I was a child. Captain Joe can u give any advice plz, what should I do, is this kind of job suitable for me? Am I gonna fail at any point? I want to be fearless in the pursuit of what sets my soul on fire 🔥 I would be so grateful if u answer me 😁😊❤️

@Sirine Sessine - I'm not an airline pilot but I have been 20 years in general aviation.
Sirine Sessine (2 months ago)
@Mike P thank you ❤️ 😊 BTW are u an airline pilot?
Mike P (2 months ago)
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.

As a pilot, are you scared of flying?

@Mike P there are actually some who develop fears as they fly

If someone is scared of flying it's obvious that this person can't be a pilot.
