Ever since I was a child, my dream was to travel the world, and experience different cultures. I, Nurali Aliyev was lucky enough to not only fulfil my passion for travelling but at thirty years old, actually secure my dream job of being a pilot. The best bits of the job is you get the chance to interact with passengers and visit a variety of interesting destinations. Sometimes you do not know where you will be flying to next literally until an hour before take-off! There is nothing like your very first flight and the realisation that it is entirely your responsibility to land the plane safely. What I love the most is that the work I carry out on a day to day basis involves a great deal of responsibility and is extremely demanding.
I have so many funny stories to tell about my day to day life as a pilot, from jetting celebrities all around the world to discussing the perks of the job but I will let you read those on my other blogs. One day I hope to inspire all those out there who are contemplating a career in aviation. The job of a pilot itself is very rewarding, but you need a lot of motivation, be 100% committed and have heaps of determination to succeed in a career in aviation. What I can tell you though, is that this certainly is not your average job – it is much more exciting than that! And if like me it has always been your childhood dream then it is worth the hard work and money spent on training.
