Real Aviation Opportunities
By Javier Sanz
Most people who get hooked by aviation, think of becoming an ATP. I don't blame them, it is one the greatest careers there are. But, among these people, there are some who, because a failed medical exam or any other reason, might not cut it. Keep in mind, for those who THINK they might not make it, you'll never know if until you try. On the other hand, there are those who really can't, but, as I've found out, there are MANY other careers for pilots out there, some are even more fun than being an ATP. To find out more, visit www.FAA.gov/education
Other cases are when you cannot get a commercial license. Don't get discouraged because of that, get a PPL, and fly with your friends and family anywhere you want; enjoy yourself in the air. But let me tell you, aviation is an expensive hobby, so might want to try a ground career. You'll be able to know more about what you do, plus you can make a good living, but as in any career, you have to work hard to make it happen.
For those who cannot make it to PPL, don't stay away for aviation, you may think you've got nothing to do in it, but you're wrong. There are many opportunities to make a very good living in ground careers. One of the most known is engineering, ATC, and many, many others, go ahead and use my link above to see a list.
I hope my words have been of some use to you all. Remember to go after what you love, and this applies to anything. Feel free to E-mail me about anything. Thanks for reading this and good luck!
