What can an airline pilot do if he is medically grounded?
Written by Capt Lim   
Monday, 26 May 2008 07:44

Hello Captain Lim,

I have this question that bugs me when I think about my future.

I am thinking... if let's say, I'm now an airline pilot but due to medical reason, I have no choice but to quit my job as a pilot. Say by that time, I would be 40 years old. What can I do?

And let's say, I have a mechanical engineering degree. By the time I am 40 years old, I would definitely not be competitive enough to compete with fresh graduates - hence decreasing my chance to secure a job. Does that mean that I can then do nothing?

In brief, what are the alternatives for pilots who are forced to quit their job due to medical reasons? What are the chances of them getting a new job? (since their working experiences are only limited to the cockpit.)

I really need to know the answer of this question as it has a lot to do with my future.

I would appreciate it if you can enlighten me on this...

Thanks a lot.

Regards,

Yee Shiuan

Dear Captain Lim,

I have to tell you that your web site is so great and it helps many people.

I have one question for you. Is it better to sit in the front or back of the plane for a smoother ride?

Thanks again on a great site.

Best of luck to you

A doctor's opinion on the medical and pilot profession?
Written by Capt Lim

This email is in response to the query here

Dear Captain Lim,

I just can't imagine how some people equate professions and professionalism with earning capacity? It beats me how this equation came about. I think he is confused between a profession and earning a lot of money.

Who is A Professional?

The Oxford dictionary defines a profession as any paid occupation, especially one that involves training and a formal qualification. If that is the case, can we include the paid occupation of unscrupulous business people and corrupt politicians who earn far, far, more than doctors or pilots? They simply become a millionaire within 1-2 years. They are probably one of the highest paid and richest professionals' in the world such as Bill Gates. Others include Chairman and CEOs of multinational companies. Are they classified as professional people?

 
Who is more professional... a doctor or pilot?

Hi Captain Lim,

Just want to ask... Who is more professional... a doctor or pilot?  My mother keeps on saying doctors are the ones who earn a lot of money. But I do not quite agree with her.

 

Recently, I found out that pilots in MAS can earn up to RM 36,000.00 a month with qualifications. I am pretty sure a doctor cannot earn as much as that.

So, the one and only Captain Lim, could you please give me the answer to this question?

Well, I am certainly going to be pilot as it is the best job in the whole wide world. LONG LIVE PILOTS!
