Life On The Road | Airline Pilot Overnights

  • Am Vor 8 Monate

    Swayne MartinSwayne Martin

    If you want to become an airline pilot, you'll typically spend somewhere from 10-15 nights away from home in hotel rooms each month. Do we pay for the hotel? How do we get to/from the airport? What are the shortest and longest overnights we have? Find out in this video! Join me on an overnight in Traverse City, Michigan after a short flight from Chicago O'Hare. Trust me, not every overnight is this good and I find myself staring at strip mall parking lots more nights than not... So enjoy the good overnights when you have them! Here's what you'll want to know about how airline pilot overnight layovers work.

    (Cockpit scenes filmed under Part 91 with approval of Envoy Air, Inc. Current mask-wearing policies were followed at the time of filming. Footage not recorded in chronological order.)

When you are on an overnight with a day of no flying in between, does the airline give you a meal stipend? What sort of things does the company compensate you with on overnights?

AHAHAH the slam-clicking!! It happens exactly the same here in Italy and we call them "Imbustatori" (like if they close themselves in an envelope [which is the hotel room] and they stay there forever)! Cheers from an E195 Captain :-)

I'm not really worried about COVID because the economy always goes up after it goes down, but I'm really worried if a pilots job might become automated, and they might lose their job. If the pilot's job becomes sitting at a desk in an office controlling the plane I would want to do that. Given my situation, I would start flying for an airline in 2030/2031, which means I would retire in about 2070. I feel kind of scared that the job might become fully automated and pilots might lose their job mid-career. :(( Can someone explain why this will or will not happen? Or why I won't or will lose my job? Thanks :((

Swayne, this is pretty cool stuff. You're a natural. A request, if I might: As you go on with these, could you work in a little more of the airplane actions? Walkarounds, cockpit footage during the flight, how stuff in the cockpit works, stuff like that. Just some ideas for future vids. Thanks for listening!
