Unfortunately in many cases, the airline pilot career option is based on an inflated idea of the glamour, potential income and relatively lax schedule that airline four-stripers are believed to enjoy. If that goal sours, what's to keep students' interest alive? One way to keep a student stimulated is to be sure they're aware of the wide variety of career options that are open to someone with a pilot certificate. If there's something a person enjoys doing, then there's an aviation vocation that will let them pursue that interest. Think about it. There's air-to-air and air-to-ground aerial photography, wildlife control and surveying, EMS and medevac, police patrol, flight instruction, fire bombing, traffic reporting, news gathering, hurricane hunting, test piloting, production test piloting, demonstration piloting, military service and air show performing.
