British Airways wants female pilots (17Feb15)

Hi Captain,

I have just finished reading your first book, LIFE IN THE SKIES within three days. The book gives me a lot of motivation to not give up in life; I’ve to recourse one of the aviation subject in my Institute. But yeah, I need to stay strong to become just like ya. oke

Let move to the question. Let say, after one has been qualified in License Aircraft Maintenance and then he takes a piloting license, does he get a higher salary than the other pilots with no Engineering background?

Leeana

Dear Leeana,

Thanks for supporting my book!

With an Engineering background, the knowledge you have acquired helps you to understand the aircraft technical systems better. It may even give you an edge during the pilot interview.

Once you are in the airlines, your salary will be the same as other pilots of similar rank or seniority. We even have the rare cases of doctors or other highly qualified professionals who became pilots. They still follow the pilots’ salary structure and start at the bottom of the ladder.

All the best to your future flying career 


Female pilots are more in control
