The once popular occupation has fallen to the point of “no one’s attention” because of the coronavirus pandemic.
European News Network reported on the 24th that the aviation industry fell into the Great Depression under the pandemic, and some pilots had to give up their dream of flying and become train drivers.
According to the report, the coronavirus pandemic, which has lasted for more than a year, has left many pilots almost inorganic.
Fearing that they would meet people without flying for a long time, some pilots were forced to accept a monthly salary of 300 euros.
In addition, in order to obtain 1,500 flight hours of flight experience, many pilots, especially novices, can only “fly at a discount”.
Some airlines even offered $39,000 to provide 500 hours of flight work for pilots. Relevant people said that this kind of using money to select pilots must be prohibited, because rich pilots are not the best, which may lead to dangerous accidents.
Because it is difficult for the air transport industry to return to normal levels by 2024, Switzerland encourages unemployed pilots to change trains. After six months of training, more than 10 pilots “go from heaven to earth” and galloped on the rails in a train.
It is reported that the monthly salary of Swiss train drivers is about 8,000 euros.
Judging from the income situation, it is a good choice to change to driving trains.
