Plane Captain Jobs

Plane Captain Job Overview


Plane Captains are the most experienced pilots on an aircraft and are in command of other crew members. These professionals are responsible for the flight of helicopters, airplanes and other aircraft. Plane Captains fly both privately and commercially to transport cargo and people on a fixed schedule. Typical tasks include checking the aircraft's condition before and after each flight, ensuring that weather conditions are acceptable, ensuring adequate fuel supply, monitoring engines, using cockpit instruments and visual references, and controlling the plane along planned routes.

Plane Captain Education Requirements


Generally, Airline Captain Pilots are required to have a bachelor’s degree, Airline Transport Pilot certificate from the FAA and a commercial pilot license. Many aspiring Captain Pilots begin their flight training in flight schools or with independent instructors. Fixed-based Operator, or FBO, flight schools provide a wide range of training such as aircraft fueling, aircraft maintenance and flight training. Some flight schools are also a part of two- and four-year university aviation degrees. Whether one attends a university program or FBO school, Commercial Pilots are required to have an FAA commercial pilot license before they can be compensated to fly.

The military is another source for becoming an Airline Captain Pilot. The military offers extensive training, and most military pilots are able to transfer directly to the airlines for pilot positions. Those who are new hires by airlines must undergo on-the-job training to be in compliance with federal aviation regulations. Training typically includes eight weeks of ground school and 25 hours of flight training.

Captain Pilots Job Market


Overall, the demand for Airline Pilots is expected to decline 7 percent throughout 2022. This is due to the need for airlines to increase profitability by increasing the number of passengers on each flight. The lower number of overall flights will reduce the need for pilots. On the flip side, the need for Commercial Pilots is projected to grow 9 percent through 2022. Commercial Pilots will be needed in a variety of industries, such as air transportation and healthcare.

Captain Pilots Salary


Research reveals that the median annual wage for Captain Pilots is $98,410.
