Aviation refers to the airline industry. There are a number of roles that are availalble in the airline industry for an individual who fits the bill. The jobs are - Pilot, Air-hostess, steward, ground staff, technical crew etc.

It is one of the most glamourous and sought after professions in the world. It can also be extremely taxing especially for those who constantly have to be flying. One of the most obvious perks for the flight crew is the constant travel, access to duty free shopping all over the world and the money is great.

Co-workers are always pleasing to the eye because that is on the revruiment criteria. The work environment is reasonably ambient. There are lots of challenges especially when a flight is delayed or the food served is not upto the mark. People management skills are tested to the hilt. But working in the aviation industry is one prolonged adrenalin rush.
