9 Reasons You Should Be A Pilot

Thinking about becoming a pilot? Here are 9 reasons why you should start right now.

9) Nothing can top 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.


8) 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.


7) Even if you're afraid of heights, you'll love the view up here.

6) Flying can lead to some amazing careers.

Most people think of airline pilots as the primary flying career, but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to flying.

5) You're part of an elite club.

In the US, about .2% of the population has a pilot certificate. If you want to stand out from the crowd, it's a great way to do it.


4) 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.


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 a part of who you are.

Flying is addictive. And for most pilots out there, it's a longtime, if not lifetime, dream to become an aviator.


1) You have the best view in the world.
