5 Surprising Benefits That Make Being a cabin crew Worth It

Although most cabin crew will tell you that the greatest perk of the job is being able to travel the world, there are other unknown benefits that makes being one worth it. If you want a job that doesn’t just let you travel for free but covers a few other benefits as well then read on to know more!

Not Susceptible to Work Fatigue

The aviation industry is now highly regulated to prevent work fatigue. Aircraft crews are given a set minimum and maximum range of how much they can work monthly. Since transporting people is a very important job, it only makes sense that the people manning the airline aren’t excessively fatigued to function.

Pilots are allowed a maximum of 8 hours of flight time within 24 hours as outlined by the Federal Aviation Administration or FAA. Although there are a couple of hours provided for pre and post-flight preparations, it nonetheless pays more compared to the traditional 160 hours you might work at an office.

You Won’t Be Micromanaged

If you love to travel, you’re probably a free spirit. If this is true for you, being micromanaged is probably something you’d prefer not deal with at work. As a captain or junior pilot, you won’t be managed onboard so it’s up to you to carry out your duties on your own initiative.

Everyone has enough freedom on the team since each one has their own responsibilities to do.

Meeting Interesting People

There are few other jobs out there that will allow you to meet a lot of interesting people. From athletes to politicians and celebrities to ordinary cool people, there’s a lot to discover in today’s pool of humanity.

Even if not everyone you’ll meet will be kind, the ones who are will no doubt make a difference in how you view people.

Free Food and Housing

Another amazing aspect of the job is the free food and housing! When you’re traveling, it’s easy to get caught up in all the new sights and things you could discover that having at least two things off your mind can feel like heaven sent! Most airlines provide free housing to whatever location you’re currently based. Many also provide food allowance per day so you basically get free food!

Awesome Compensation and Benefits

Aside from the standard travel perks, pilot salary is also higher than the national average. The job also comes with comprehensive health and retirement plans. The health insurance already includes dental and eye insurance as well as a profit-sharing program or a 401(k).

Depending on your personality, there many other aspects of the job that you might also enjoy. Bigger airlines also offer other valuable perks like establishment and shopping discounts to level up your travel experience as you jetset around the world!

Other Aircrew Jobs

Of course, being a pilot isn’t your only recourse to being an aircrew. Other aircrew jobs include flight attendants, flight engineers, and aircraft loadmasters, to name just a few. All of the said jobs require different qualifications and may vary a little in benefits as well. But for the most part, the above benefits ring true!
