You need to be good at placing things because you need to know where the bottom of the plane is, so you can land softly and safely. You need to be good at problem solving so you can fix mechanical issues. You need to have a pilot's license so you can legally fly a plane.   

Future, Salary, Issues

The job numbers are suspected to increase moderately by 1.2% The need for pilots is at an all time high and the number of new pilots is at an all time low. With this in mind, the future of the career depends on if people start flying.

The salary is $90,500 on average.

Some important issues is the recent pilot suicide in Europe and missing Malaysian Flight 370 these are important issues because the suicide is going to lead to more in depth background checks and flight 370 is going to lead to extra security between the pilots, passengers and closer watch on aircraft.
