These are some of the reviews I’ve gotten, since becoming a commercial heli pilot. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve gotten one or two negative reviews too lol 🙄 But for the most part, this is what people have to say... .
Flying is not as glamorous as it might seem, from what I portray on social media. Most of the time, yes, it’s awesome. “Do what you love & you’ll never work a day in your life”. This is true to an extent. People usually see my job as being “badass”...but they don’t realize what goes in to an average day at work. Imagine driving from another state to get to work. YES, people do this. Imagine getting to work, only to realize it’s going to be IFR all day so you’ve got to cancel all of your flights and hope people reschedule. Imagine sitting at an airport for 8 hours, only to log and get paid for 1 hour. .
It’s honestly crazy the sacrifices we make, just to have the opportunity to fly and build hours. But just like any other great career, you’ve got to start at the bottom and work your way up. It’s definitely a grind.. but to the people that write these reviews, y’all are the real MVPs!! It feels amazing getting feedback like this 😘🚁
