Prepping For Post-COVID Jobs

David Prossor gives his practical tips for what stood down or out of work pilots can do as the industry slowly reopens

AIRLINE AND GA pilots have both been doing it tough, but GA gets little media publicity. From a pilot’s point of view, we have to ask when it will all end? It pains me to hear that highly experienced airline pilots are out of a job, forced to do any job to bring in a dollar.

For older pilots there will be many that will never get the callback. For younger airline pilots there will be limited work but on an irregular basis. For others there will be no early recall and the consideration that the letter in today’s mail will not be a termination notice. Some pilots will leave the airline system as will a number of GA pilots all with the thought that the joy ride has been great and enjoyable but that they want a job that pays the bills on a regular basis. This
writer is aware of pilots of long standing and with good total times who have bailed out to other occupations never to return.
