Position Overview

Pilots usually work at commercial airlines where their core work is to transport passengers from one destination to another in a safe and timely manner. Pilots are trained professionals who have gone through rigorous training procedures and flight simulations before they are entrusted with a plane to fly.

Pilots do not just fly planes; they are also expected to perform preflight inspections to ensure that all is well with the aircraft and manage post flight duties which may include arranging for maintenance and securing the aircraft.
