Flying is not a job. It’s a passion having control over a big airbus or Boeing or any other plane is absolutely mind-blowing. Approaching airports you have not yet flown to give you that thrilling sensation as you are flying into the unknown or to land approaches into the dense fog where you completely rely on your instruments and the autopilot give you a rush.

Pilots get paid pretty well compared to other jobs for their time. They are actually at a work to give an example a friend of mine works as a doctor at a clinic kicking off 60 hours per week accumulating 200 hours per hours month and I find the average of 70 hours per month and get paid the same or even more also if you’re away from home staying overnight in different cites etc. You get paid for not sleeping in your bed.
Pilots have a lot of free time obviously varies from airline to airline if you fly for the charter airline which has most of its luggage in this summer season you have a lot of free time during the winter months. pilots might have only eight flight per month, so approximately 20 days off not necessarily at home but outside of the airplane and thanks to new regulation pilots have to more free time in between flights and I’ve added all my off dates from last year including holiday and standby duty size didn’t get called out of and I had 204 days off which is more than half year of free time, not bad if you’re considering the good salary.
Being a pilot is great despite the fact where many other people say you have a huge responsibility regarding your plane and the safety of your passenger and therefore you get paid adequately and you need in a free time to rest and recuperate.
