What is the present scenario for commercial pilots jobs?
I m a school student and i want to take Commerial pilot as my career. I want to know about the present job availabe. Is this industry booming? What is the success rate in India after getting a CPL? Is it fruitful to get into this profession? Is it easy to make into some good airline nowdays? I would really thankful and appreciate if a pilot (or anybody who has the knowledge about this) answer my questions.
