What type of pilots?

Any really, just want some more first hand experience etc.

Army pathfinder!? Top respect to you, itsf surprising how many people in 'elite' regiments and play airsoft .
I know a few marine who do and a couple of para's and I'm trying to get my dad to start aswell.

Whole range of jobs really, currently on fast jets so aircraft weapon loading (missiles, fuel tanks, gun), ejection seat servicing, gun loading. Or in servicing bays you could work on the pylons. Work in a bomb dump and prep laser guided bombs etc, or work in small arms and service L85s all day!

Basically anything that goes bang on an aircraft!

I can't believe nobody has mentioned this yet!

I'd really like a job in Airsoft, maybe running a shop or site or even a technician if I ever learn how a gearbox works :)

Basically anything working with real or imitation firearms.

I wouldn't.... As soon as you get a job in your hobby it becomes something you slowly hate because you end up thinking of it as work and who would want to pay to go to work!

I agree with the above about a profession killing a hobby.

I turned pro-photographer part time last year and started doing weddings, since then my interest has dwindled to the point where I only pick up my camera to boost my portfolio for business' sake.

Airsoft wise though, it might be a bit different. I think marshalling isn't too bad, at my old site I'd marshall a half day then play a half day; it was fairly casual so wasn't really like work and it got me a half days play for free. A retailer might also be cool; wholesale prices on equipment etc.

In an ideal world I'd love my own site; I've got blueprints and diagrams and everything but unless I had the money to do it outright and do it properly AND hire a full compliment of staff so that I could basically play at my own custom made site and reap the rewards, it'd stop me playing and keep me working. Working for a magazine like AI would probably be different, I imagine that's fairly awesome.

Like I say, in an ideal world.

Meh, you may be right...
Still, it would be pretty cool.
