Dangerous Jobs That Pay Big Money


4. Airline Pilot – $114,200 

While airline travel is considered safe, being an airline pilot is one of the most dangerous jobs because of the possibility of malfunctioning equipment, especially during take off and landing. Airline pilots must have a bachelor’s degree, log in a certain number of hours in flight, obtain a commercial pilot’s license and airline certifications and gain experience, in order to advance. Many airline pilots also have military training.
