Anyone know about the airplane industry?
Well, I know this question is a doozy, so you don't have to elaborate, if you have a link, that will do. I am interested in pursuing a career in the airliner industry. What I wanted to know is, is any military/air-force service required to become a pilot or co-pilot, or flight attendant, and what is the average pay for a pilot, co-pilot, and flight attendant? Thank you so much, any answers are greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for the descriptive answers, sorry, but I would now like to know, how can you build flying hours, without flying solo in a civillian aircraft? Can you build hours at the flight schools? And, how many flight hours are "acceptable" for a major airline?

After you've built enough flight hours to... More
