Pros: travel, working on aircraft, a lot of leeway with breaks.
Cons: working in all kinds of weather conditions, if one works hard, they will be expected to work hard while those who don't, are expected to slack.
A job reserved for the hard-charging individual. The job is exiting and my weekend consists of a mix of Plane Captain duties such as washing, daily inspections, aircraft fueling and aircraft movement from one place to another ( from the flightline to the hangar or from the flightline to the wash rack) Management has its hands full trying to juggle the – more... needs and desires of the site's employees. The work ethic of the site is mixed, by that I mean some people go above and beyond and some do just barely enough to stay employed.There are tasks that are not very pleasant or glamorous such as washing aircraft or cleaning the flightline. Some parts of the job can be mundane or repetitive. There are no real hard parts of this job however, It can be sort of annoying to watch the same people volunteer to do things while others constantly loaf around. I love traveling with the squadron we work with. – less
