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.
