One thing you could maybe add is "private/recreational pilot". Not the same as working in the airlines, but it might still be interesting. I have flown various Cessnas and Piper PA28, PA38, also the Robin 2160.  I learnt in the UK but also flew a lot in the States. I haven't flown for a few years due to my current location, but I stil have it in my blood and will go back to it one day.

I too have learnt in the UK (EASA PPL+IMC).  Aiming to go commericial after University.  May go back to the states (where I was born and raised) to complete my FAA licences as it's much cheaper than over here in Europe!

I'm going to guess that "Civilian Pilot" is what he meant for private/recreational pilots...

I'm currently flying a PA28-161 very nice plane to fly, really enjoy it.

Kinda a bit generic as airline pilots are civil pilots being they are not in the Military.

airline personnel was meant to mean airline staff who are not pilots

Phenoms are superior aesthetically. Embraer knows how to make beautiful planes.

Agreed.  The Phenom 300 is one sexy jet.  However the Honda Jet is an equally good looking plane.  For me, nothing beats the look of the Citation 525.

Commercial pilot and flight instructor currently.  Couldn't ask for a better job! Loving being in the sky for many hours during the day.

Phenoms are fun as well, but I believe a Phenom 100 is more expensive. Gotta set realistic goals ;p
