Latest News: Bringing the untold stories of airline pilots to life
Dr Simon Bennett, Director of the Civil Safety and Security Unit at the University of Leicester, has published a book about the pilot lifestyle entitled How Pilots Live: An Examination of the Lifestyle of Commercial Pilots.
The book, published by Peter Lang, describes the highs and lows of the job from the struggle to pay for training, to time spent down-route in noisy hotels, to making plans for possible forced retirement.
Dr Bennett said: Commercial flying is a tough job that makes huge demands. Less than 20% of pilots surveyed said they would recommend a career in commercial aviation to their offspring. Nevertheless, those who participated in the research are proud of their craft a testament to their professionalism and commitment.
