Kind of depends. The lion's share are one or two day trips. The rest are 3 to 7 day trips. Typically traveling around 3 weeks out of the month and home the other week trying to give the family undivided attention. No need to be scared of flying. It's the drive to the airport that should scare ya!

Argh! Flying 3 weeks a month! That's sounds torturous! It's the taking off and landing I hate. The last time I was on a plane i was on my own and it was horrific! I lost my boarding pass and everything! I was a wreak! I don't drink but I had 3 glasses of wine by the time I landed! Hahahaha! Was only an hr flight to Bristol! Pathetic eh?!

I'm a corporate pilot. I fly a business aircraft for a large company... Kind of a private airline if you want to think of it that way.

I see! That's a pretty cool job to have! Like a chauffeur driven plane?! Wow! I have a job that's the complete opposite from that! I run my own home care company for the elderly i love it! The stories older people can tell fascinate me! What I would give to have been young in the 30s through to the 60s! But hey I'm only 32, nah chance of that!

Sounds like your job is far more honorable than mine. Caring for those who are nearing the end of life's journey seems like a noble profession. Good for you!

Yours sounds more exciting though its a difficult job *** I get really attached to people quickly and I know some don't have long left. No one has died on me yet so fingers crossed they all live til they're 150! I've got loads of wee grannies now which is cool *** I don't have any grandparents left! So is it the same passenger u have or do they change? Take it it's only the fat cats who get to go in your wee plane? CEOs etc? I'm a company director so I should have my own plane n pilot eh?! I wish hahahaha!

If I do my job properly, it is not exciting at all.

Disboards doesn't like my made up words clearly! It's a three letter word short for 'because'!
