This article paints a pretty accurate picture of the expected pay for commercial pilots at the airlines. True that it’s a slow start at the regional airline level, but once you get up to the major airlines, it’s a pretty good living and lifestyle. With realistic expectations, this is still a great career path with very nice earning potential. We’d love to help you get your commercial license and get prepared for this!

This is great: the ATOP (Airline Training Orientation Program) is available to any pilot (student or above) and is the perfect way to see what airline training is like. If you’re interested in a career as a pilot, or just excited about anamazing experience, check them out. The local class is at American Airlines training center and uses their Boeing 737 full motion simulator. There’s also one in Orlando, FL, in Jet Blue’s Airbus 320 simulator.
