If you love to travel and do not like the regular 9 to 5 job, being a pilot might be for you. Although being a pilot might not require a college degree, that does not mean it is easy. You have to take many classes and get 1,500 hours of flight training in before you can become an actual pilot.
Pilots have many options, including working for commercial airlines, cargo airlines, and corporations. The average annual salary for a pilot is $110,000, but many experienced pilots make much more than that. Like many other jobs, salary is commensurate on quality assessment, experience, and type of license.
