WHAT ARE THE PERKS
of being a pilot?
For many, a pilot career is a dream they have nurtured since childhood. It is no surprise that once you get infected with the passion for aviation, you cannot resist it and turn it into a life-long goal. Indeed, being a pilot is a genuinely meaningful and responsible career that will never go out of style, offering you many perks.
Travel for free
There are few careers where you can expect to travel the world for free and actually get remunerated for doing so. You will quickly see how the list of countries you have visited and people you met is growing, shaping and enriching your life due to the authentic lifestyle you lead as a pilot.
Improve your skillset
Pilots work in a very challenging environment, as safety is the top priority in aviation. But the satisfaction that comes from constantly honing your skills in the field you are curious to learn more about is priceless. No two flights will ever be the same, making you improve, gain new experience and be ready to handle the most complex scenarios. And all that, while having the best "office view" one could imagine!
Maintain the balance
And no, it's not about little time at home and the absence of personal life. Many pilots have found a good balance between their professional and personal life. Instead of working from 9 to 5, you will have a more flexible work schedule and will be able to plan your time off and gatherings with family and friends accordingly!
High and growing salaries
Last but not least, pay rates of commercial airline pilots are very high compared to other professions. They typically include notable benefits and grow in line with experience and flown hours. The approximate salary of a First Officer at a regional carrier is 45,000 €/year and up to 310,000 €/year of a Captain at a major airline.

Interview with an assessment specialist
After passing the assessment, it is necessary to undergo a medical examination* as it is a prerequisite to starting your pilot training. If the aim is to obtain a commercial pilot license, a Class 1 medical certificate is required, whereas, for private pilot training, Class 2 is also acceptable.
* If you do not hold any license, your medical certificate has to be issued in Lithuania according to the Lithuanian CAA. You only need to validate your medical certificate in Lithuania if you already have a license.More about medical examination
