Pilots, Are long flights boring What do you do during a flight? What does your work life balance look like??
I took a career test and my top suggested job was a flight engineer, but it seems like flight engineers aren't needed as much anymore
There are always things to keep you busy and occupied. It will depend on how you apply yourself in your role in the cockpit.
As far as work-life balance goes it all depends on the lifestyle you want if you want to be home every night you try to do flights that finish earlier in the day and you try to do local flights that allow you to be home every night if not every other night. if you're single, no kids, or obligations then you can do longer trips that keep you away from home, but you are legally required to have a certain amount of rest in between trips and you get your schedule monthly which allows you to plan things out for the month.
