The demand for commercial as well as mil pilots are overwhelming these days.
with free skies, FTA n "open skies" treaties..airlines n routes are proliferated.
and No..commercial or military pilots do not have a lonely job. U will work in group,u rely alot on the people on the ground as u do on the air with ur wingmen. It takes a lot to operate a flight, from engineering to dispatchers,traffic staff, DCAs,( Department of Civil Aviation) , Govermental regulatories bodies..ATC and many others. U will learn to work with your own peers & others , during a flight u will have to work with ground staff, engineers, loadmastes, sign various documents to certify that all procedures,loading, aircraft C of G n safety are IAW ( In Accordance With ) Safety regulations, u also have to make sure that ur own set of crew are up to perform a flight.That is why pilots have to pass a course called CRM (Crew Resource management) and that is to make use of resources around you plus etiquette ,responsibilities, different cultures ,professionalism..etc..
SO u see Miss Isis, you will have more than what u wish for..working in a big global group.
Hope this helps.
Btw, I had worked with some female pilots who are as good if not BETTER than male counterparts, PMS or not! That's how professional they are. too bad 2 of them retire early.
