1. Is English Important in Your Job?

I enjoy the trust which they put in my competence and skills. I also like that as a pilot there are no limits for my personal development. I have so many more levels of competence to get to and you know, there are so many types of planes to ﬂy. The bad things: ok ﬂying takes a lot of time, I do not earn my living as a pilot so sometimes ﬂying interferes with my duties and family obligations.
