Careers in the Aviation Industry

Most full-time jobs provide employees with monetary compensation, health insurance, retirement plans, vacation and sick leave. Sometimes the company other benefits such as flexible spending accounts and discounts to Disneyland or something of that nature. How would you like a job mixes all of those benefits plus worldwide and/or national travel and often flexible scheduling? Of course, one of the great benefits of working for an airline is free or greatly discounted travel for yourself and immediate family. It’s quite the famous job perk and no other industry can match it.

The airline industry of today, post-9/11, may not be quite what it was in terms of providing job stability and relatively carefree travel, but it’s still pretty darned good.
