About Me

I'm a Ballard Memorial High School student, sometimes i get a good drawing, but i really enjoy writing a story. Although, because i've never had anyone read one of my stories, i can't claim anything as to how good or bad they are, so please feel free to give out a little constructive criticism.

My ideal job.

My ideal job, is a military airplane pilot. I'm interested in this job is because I think it is an important one, as well as a one I would enjoy.
  • pilot training and education
To enter this occupation, a bachelor's degree is necesary. Physics and aerospace, electrical, or mechanical engineering, these fields of study are helpful. This is usually a 2-year program, covers one year in initial training, and one year in advanced training. Initial training involves fight simulaters, and basic flight training, as well as classroom and officer training. This is considered to be the most difficult training offered by the services. Not everyone is capable of meeting the strict requirements for completion of this training. Pilots begin advanced training when they are given thier "wings" as a reward for completeing thier initial training. During advanced training, pilots recieve instructions to fly a certain kind of aircraft. Course content usually involves; aircraft aerodynamics,jet and propeller engine operation, operation of aircraft, navigation systems, foul weather flying, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations.

  • variations on the job
Fighters, trainers, bombers, advisers, the list goes on and pilots do any one of these jobs that is required of them.

  • Average salary
average salary for an air force pilot is $35,000, of course even becoming a pilot is determined by performance and rank

  • attributes

A desire to fly planes must ovecome any fears of crashing, determination to finish a demanding or difficult training program, self-confidene, and the ability to remain calm in stressful situations, are all helpful attributes for this career.
