Hi all, I’m 30 years old and thinking of becoming a commercial pilot. I wanted to ask pilots here what time off looks like; I know it will be different per company/etc. but wanted to know a ball park of how it works. Do most pilots work X amount of days and have Y amount of days off - Similar to over the road trucking? Is there a way to work a few days on and have a few off or even work 5 days on 2 days off like “normal” job positions? None of this bothers me in any way, I’d just like an answer on this out of curiosity.
Also, I’ve read that major airline companies want a pilot to have a bachelor’s degree as a minimum. With me not having a degree of any kind, will that make it almost impossible to find a job after completing ATP’s course in full?
Thank you very much,
