Privatjetpilot against Airlinepilot
In the truest sense of the word, time passes. I began my aeronautical carrier as First officer in a private jet in 2010 and it has been half a year since I began my new Airbus A300-600 work. I have not finished my line practice yet and will continue for another 40 segments.
"In December of last year, I presented my new airplane to you and described my reason for changing to another member of staff. However much I like General Aviation, I have chosen to continue and take on a new professional responsibility with a completely different company.
I' ll be comparing both modes as you know it and showing you the difference in your private and airliner years. Usually airlines' pilot flights last more a year. My first gig at the Jet Service took me about 250-300 flying lessons a year.
Later, I was flying about 500 hrs in one year with the Citation XLS+. Now I will be flying about 450 hrs in one year, although it is an air carrier. Cheap airlines in particular operate up to a max. of 900 flight times a year.
That is great to get flying lessons in no short timeframe. Overall flying times depend entirely on the nature of the airline's operations (private, chartered, commercial). Being a private jet pilot I got to know many different European airfields. Because the power of smaller corporate aircraft allows them to land on short take-off and runway distances, you will reach many more goals than an airliner pilot.
Most of the inch blocks I've flown to a new airfield I think have never been there before. The work in Businessaviation demands a high flexibility in the working hours. Anticipate ad hoc charters and short-term changes. As a rule, the timetable itself is not as robust as that of an air carrier.
As in my former job, I work a max. of 7 consecutive workdays. However, I know them from other companies where a pilot works up to 20 consecutive workdays. In summary, it can be said that you can much better organize your own community planning with an air carrier. Hotels and transfers are reserved by the firm and after a plane ride you disembark 15min later.
Airlines attach great importance to a well-trained flight deck team. This is why every pilot goes into the flight simulator twice a year. When I started my carreer, I did all my inspections on transfer missions, so the business wanted to cut costs on costly flight simulators. I have already said that the aeroplane class is important for your own aeronautical careers.
Operating a different carrier may seem different, and other flyers may disagree with you. A pilot's lifetime is the better option for design purposes. It gives your community a better standard of living. I liked in commercial air travel that I was flying to many more places and that sometimes I didn't know where I would be the next one.
At the same place, a much more robust riser allows you to better schedule your resting period during your stay. During 6 years of doing busines flying I was only twice in London city centre, although I remained there for over 100 days. There was either not much free space or I did not know when the next plane would take place, so I was on stand-by at the hospital.
I now know my precise sailing times, which has already enabled me to do my sight-seeing in Paris and London. Air travel in businesses has many delays. Whether for the passenger, the petrol, the hotel room, the next plane or the cab. Private flying takes much longer to prepare and you can't get off the plane immediately after the last one.
In addition, in addition to this, there are many other commercially operated services that you need to complete in order to begin your service wherever the jet is now. I think an air carrier will make you a better pilot because the education is more comprehensive and the standard is higher.
Operational methods are defined in detail so that each pilot serves the airplane in the same way. I have seen a number of commercial air travelers who have not strictly followed the procedure and interpret the rules in their own way. I think that the air carrier's lifestyle is much more relaxing because a great deal has already been done and organised.
Frankly, I cannot say which surgery I favour because they are so different, but I must say that I definitely miss some aspect of that. What surgery would you like? Air carrier or private jet?
