The aviation industry is made up of people who keep our aircraft in the sky – something that’s essential for public safety and national and international defence and transportation, as well as for ensuring that we can enjoy our holidays abroad without hassle!
There are four main categories within the aviation industry: international, national, domestic and cargo. Those working for commercial airlines might fly, command or work with planes domestically, nationally or internationally, whilst pilots or others who work in areas such as logistics are more likely to deal with the cargo part of the industry, moving goods from place to place. Many of those who work in aviation also work on the ground, at an airport.
Basically, it’s the industry that facilitates the aircraft business – anything or anyone that needs to be transported via the air. It’s an industry that’s at the forefront of technological development, allowing goods to be transported across the world within hours and people to fly thousands of miles (London to Western Australia recently became one of the world’s longest direct flights). It can be a glamorous job, too – especially in roles such as a pilot, which is seen as a hugely respected career choice.
