Best Paying Flying Jobs

The Airline Industry has been going through a rough transition for years now. From buttoned-down security to sky-high gas prices, it's been a bumpy ride. Still, the fact remains that people want to travel and there are plenty of Jobs available at Airlines, Airports, Airplane companies and security organizations around the globe. Where might your talents fit into the aviation industry ?

Many people wish for the glamorous lifestyle and income of a Pilot. But, do Pilots always wear crisp Uniforms and make the big Bucks ?  Not necessarily, according to to Aviation Industry Experts  "There's a huge variation in pay depending on whether you're flying a float plane for a regional commuter company or flying 747s for United. Regional Airlines sometimes pay $20 per hour and only when the engine is on."  that too with only 1000 hours of engine time a year, that hourly rate can come close to minimum wage.

Fortunately, you don't have to wait to fly Jumbo Jets if want to work in Aviation. In fact, if you like doing math, mechanical work or security tasks, here are some in-demand job options, that are also some of the best-paid in the industry.

1. Director of Aerospace Program Management

Median Annual Salary: $1,10,000

Aerospace is second only to petroleum engineering in pay." That's why the director of an aerospace engineering program management team can earn well into the six figures. This person likely has a Graduate Degree in Business, such as an MBA, in addition to their degree in engineering. Directors are involved in developing the company's business strategy, negotiating contracts to build Aircraft and taking responsibility for company profitability.

2. Airline Pilot, CoPilot or Flight Engineer

Median Annual Salary: $70,000

Most Pilots used to receive their training in the military, but in recent years a college degree and training from an FAA-certified flight training school has become more common among new hires. And, while many may pay less, there are plenty of jobs for Pilots besides passenger airline gigs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), about 34 percent of commercial Pilots use their time in the air to dust crops, test planes, monitor traffic, fight fires and perform other non-typical functions.

3. Aerospace Project Engineer

Median Annual Salary: $52,000

An aerospace project engineer must not only understand the ins and outs of aerospace engineering, but they must have the personal and organizational skills to lead a team through a project. A project engineer is likely involved in managing the budget for a project, hiring and training staff, checking their team's work and other administrative tasks.

4. Aircraft Maintenance Manager

Median Annual Salary: $44,200

Once again, this is a job position that requires both technical skill and a knack for leading teams. A maintenance manager is a knowledgeable professional who ensures that their teams perform maintenance regularly and according to regulatory guidelines. The manager schedules a staff of technicians and likely does much of the hiring and training of their team.

5. Air Traffic Controller

Median Annual Salary:$32,500

Lee notes that air traffic controller is one of the best-paying jobs you can have with an associate's degree. It's well known for causing sky-high stress levels and requiring a tremendous amount of mental focus. But, did you know that, depending on the airport, the work is separated out between controllers for ground movement, take-off, en route flight time, landing and more? The competition for these lucrative, steady job positions is steep, though the BLS expects a wave of retirement in the coming years that should open up more positions to younger controllers.

International Aviation Organizations

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It codifies the principles and techniques of international air navigation and fosters the planning and development of international air transport to ensure safe and orderly growth. Its headquarters are located in the Quartier International of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The ICAO Council adopts standards and recommended practices concerning air navigation, its infrastructure, flight inspection, prevention of unlawful interference, and facilitation of border-crossing procedures for international civil aviation. In addition, the ICAO defines the protocols for air accident investigation followed by transport safety authorities in countries signatory to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, commonly known as the Chicago Convention.
As of November 2011, there were 191 ICAO members, consisting of 190 of the 193 UN members.
The ICAO defines an International Standard Atmosphere (also known as ICAO Standard Atmosphere), a model of the standard variation of pressure, temperature, density, and viscosity with altitude in the Earth's atmosphere.It also standardizes certain functions for use in the airline industry, such as the Aeronautical Message Handling System (AMHS), making it a standards organization.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the national aviation authority of the United States of America. An agency of the United States Department of Transportation, it has authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the U.S. The Federal Aviation Act of 1958 created the organization under the name "Federal Aviation Agency", and adopted its current name in 1966 when it became a part of the United States Department of Transportation.
The FAA's roles include:
Regulating U.S. commercial space transportation.
Regulating air navigation facilities' geometry and flight inspection standards. 
Encouraging and developing civil aeronautics, including new aviation technology.
Issuing, suspending, or revoking Pilot certificates.
Regulating civil aviation to promote safety, especially through local offices called Flight Standards District Offices.
Developing and operating a system of air traffic control and navigation for both civil and military aircraft.
Researching and developing the National Airspace System and civil aeronautics.
Developing and carrying out programs to control aircraft noise and other environmental effects of civil aviation.
The FAA is divided into four "lines of business" (LOB).Each LOB has a specific role within the FAA.
Airports (ARP):-Plans and develops projects involving airports, overseeing their construction and operations. Ensures compliance with federal regulations.
Air Traffic Organization (ATO):-Primary duty is to safely and efficiently move air traffic within the National Airspace System. ATO employees manage air traffic facilities including Airport Traffic Control Towers (ATCT) and Terminal Radar Approach Control Facilities (TRACONs).
Aviation Safety (AVS):-Responsible for aeronautical certification of personnel and aircraft, including Pilots, airlines, and mechanics.
Commercial Space Transportation (AST):-Ensures protection of U.S. assets during the launch or reentry of commercial space vehicles.

The Joint Aviation Authorities(JAA), was an associated body of the ECAC representing the civil aviation regulatory authorities of a number of European States who had agreed to co-operate in developing and implementing common safety regulatory standards and procedures. It was not a regulatory body, regulation being achieved through the member authorities.
In implementing the so-called FUJA Report, the JAA had entered into a new phase as of 1 January 2007. In this new phase the former "JAA" had become "JAA T" (Transition). JAA T consisted of a Liaison Office (JAA LO) and a Training Office (JAA TO). The offices of JAA LO were located in the premises of European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in Cologne, Germany.
The JAA started as the Joint Airworthiness Authorities in 1970. Originally, its objectives were only to produce common certification codes for large aeroplanes and for engines in order to meet the needs of European industry and international consortia (e.g., Airbus). After 1987 its work was extended to operations, maintenance, licensing and certification/design standards for all classes of aircraft.

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is a European Union (EU) agency with regulatory and executive tasks in the field of civilian aviation safety. Based in Cologne, Germany, the EASA was created on 15 July 2002,and it reached full functionality in 2008, taking over functions of the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA). European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries have been granted participation in the agency.
The responsibilities of EASA include to conduct analysis and research of safety, authorising foreign operators, giving advice for the drafting of EU legislation, implementing and monitoring safety rules (including inspections in the member states), giving type-certification of aircraft and components as well as the approval of organisations involved in the design, manufacture and maintenance of aeronautical products.
The member states are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands and The United Kingdom.

The European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) or Conférence Européenne de l'Aviation Civile (CEAC) is an intergovernmental organization which was established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Council of Europe. It is located in Neuilly-sur-Seine/Paris in France. Founded in 1955 with 19 Member States at the time, ECAC counts today 44 members, including all 27 EU, 30 of the 31 European Aviation Safety Agency and all 39 EUROCONTROL Member States.
ECACp romotes the continued development of a safe, efficient and sustainable European air transport system. .
Its strategic priorities are safety, security and the environment.
ECAC Member States are: Albania, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Republic of Macedonia, Turkey, Ukraine and United Kingdom.

The CAA has been envisaged as an autonomous regulatory body which will replace the DGCA and will meet standards set by the UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The CAA will have separate departments to deal with safety, economic regulation and grievance resolution, as well as a full-fledged environment department. It will also have an independent accident investigation bureau. The Authority will also have the autonomy to recruit staff.
Currently, the DGCA is understaffed and does not have any recruitment powers. The CAA will have administrative and financial powers similar to those of the American FAA. These powers will redefine the regulator's role and better equip it to face the challenges of the growing Aviation sector in the country. Employees working with DGCA will be transferred to the CAA.
The CAA would be self-financing and have a separate fund called the 'Civil Aviation Authority of India Fund' that would finance its entire expenses. It would have a Chairperson, a Director General and 7-9 members appointed by the Central Government. These members will be qualified in the fields of aviation safety, aircraft engineering, flight standard operations, aerodromes, air navigation systems and air space management.
