Things Every Pilot Needs to Pack in Their Suitcase

Ask a child what they want to be when they grow up and the answer usually ranges from singer, to astronaut, to firefighter, to pilot. All are exciting and adventurous in their own way, but it is the latter of them all just might be the coolest.

Pilots get to live the dream that others only think about. They get to travel all of the time, they get to spend days and nights in exotic locations, they get to meet the coolest people, and they get to see the entire world from 30,000 feet in the air. Imagine the most stunning view you’ve ever gotten to see, put yourself above all of it, and imagine getting to see things like that every night that you work. Magical is truly the word that describes it.

If you’re a pilot, or you’re training to be one, here are things every pilot or pilot to be needs to pack in their suitcase as they board the plane and embark on the adventure of a lifetime:

A Camera

In today’s world, everybody uses their smartphones for their camera. This does the trick most of the time, but when you’re a pilot and you’re flying to the most exotic locations, a smart phone just won’t cut it. You have to make the most of the situations you’re in. When you’re not flying, go out and enjoy the cities you’re in with a camera.

Learn how to use one like a photographer and be amazed at the wonderful things you get to capture. If you’re less inclined to buy a fancy digital camera, go the old fashioned route and buy a polaroid so that you can snap a picture every time you see a sunset or sunrise from up in the air that just has to be preserved in an eternal memory.

Something To Cut and Capture Sound

Cockpits of aircrafts can get extremely noisy. If you have a poor set of headphones, you can get really annoyed at all of the white noise you hear and it can be hard to focus on the task at hand. If you’re in this boat and you’re tired of your current headset, you need to look into getting a headset that is built for your profession.

Find a piece of technology that cuts out cabin noise and has capabilities like bluetooth. Pay attention to comfort as well. There’s a lot that goes into technology that is efficient and comfortable, so find the best of the best and don’t forget to pack it into your suitcase on your next shift.

Traveling is the coolest and when you have a profession that allows you to do it all the time, you need the best accessories to capitalize on the experiences you get to have every day. Get the camera and get the headset and you’ll instantly see how much your 9-5 life is enhanced.
