Just simply, why did you (or do you want to) become a pilot? Whether private or commercial, I’d like to know your reasons!
For me, I think it’s the feeling of freedom and the sense of performing a job which not every ordinary person can do, coupled with the fact that you are actually performing a helpful service (i.e. you are physically helping people get to where they want to go).
This is just a place to share their experiences and their motivations for pursuing this career - additionally, has it turned out to be like you expected it to be?
Of course, this isn’t just open to current pilots! If you wish to pursue this career at some point in the future (you may still be in education or simply not ready to do so yet), then please do also share your reasons too!
