Working as an Airline pilot is in any case a very interesting, challenging and demanding job. I say - job as some people look at this as a job but I feel that to be a pilot is a passion. A pilot is a unique commodity even in todays world and in todays environment of high tech jobs. This is a very demanding, skill based environment where a person is in the environment which is new to them, flying heavier than air machines, taking responsibility of hundreds of passengers, your crew and an aircraft which costs millions of dollars. The task is so demanding that any one miscalculation or wrong decision can cause the huge aircraft with its paggangers to come hurtling down to the earth. In this high demanding passion if we want to do something else while being a pilot then there are a few things which are dependent upon the area of interest and the age of the Person. Some of these are: Upgrade your knowledge about aerospace and about the latest designs, latest materials used for making the aircraft, the latest engines. But to some this is part of the job and one needs to do something more - while you may be travelling everyday but you are not sight seeing. Learn to go and visit places where you land, read about them, visit them see them and document them and this could lead you to a hobby of photography of the lovely sunrises and sunsets that you would witness from the cockpit many times. Along with travelling for sightseeing and photography the next interesting thing that is good is interacting with people. While as pilots we tend to be in the cockpit take time out to go and visit the passengers, talk to them, know about them, believe me this is not just being nice to them but it is a great learning on human behavior. There is always scope for greater reading as a habit and reading good books which would enhance your mental and spiritual minds if you are so inclined. While your work would make you be a leader and a team member but it would be wonderful if you learn about this in depth as these would help you to be a better human being and also to be a better commander. So in essence there are many things from enhancing knowledge to sightseeing, to photography to learning human behavior which one can do while being an Airline pilot.
