Answers from JobShadow Interview – Interview with a Cargo Pilot
What do you like about being a cargo pilot?
I love to travel and see the world and I love flying airplanes. There is a lot of responsibility given to you — the aircraft cost a couple hundred million dollars and the cargo is very expensive. I get a day or two at most layover locations to travel, eat, and have fun. I get a lot of time of work.
What do you dislike?
Long flights can be extremely boring and fatiguing. The cargo can be hazardous.
