We are all together as hobby builders and flight simulation enthusiasts. But it is also a fact that not all of us are in the field of aviation. This poll is to just know more about our real world professions.

Note: The individual votes are confidential and cannot by seen by others. What is visible is only total votes.

I voted engineer because that is my profession although i havent been in the trade for over 6 years. I was a manual/cnc miller. I'm still in engineering but i re-trained in a different engineering field and i wonder if i should tell you what it is lol.
I get covered in poo now and again and come around your house and unblock your sewerage amongst other very disgusting things lol. Im a drainage technician lol So if you ever have the pleasure of meeting me... make sure im out of my work gear and i have showered before you shake my hand, because you wont be to sure where its been.

I thought about but then made the category more broader by including "Aviation Industry"

Hello !

I know you canīt list every profession there is, therefore Others is fine.

And I think it has some relevance to know who is Engineer,Aviation Industry etc etc.

What about craftsman working with wood or metal... ???

You're right.... Like they say, hind site has 20/20 vision :) :) :)

Every time we do a new poll we learn, and we are grateful for anyones input. Matter of fact, if anyone has an idea of a poll, send Vybhav or myself a list of questions and we'll use it.

I can't believe it that you left out the Computer Industry. lol. :-) Without computers there would not have been a cockpit building hobby. 80% of the Other group is probably from the IT Industry.

It's true you can't put up every profession. The answers are quite interesting so far.

I am an EE. I've done all sorts of things in the computer business over the years. I was playing on the internet long before anyone knew anything about it. I started out working on machines that no one has heard of these days. I'm rather dated to some degree. I left that part of the high tech business in 2002 and started a telescope business. I designed, built, and sold large portable telescopes for astronomical observing. They were very nice with lots of cool features including GOTO and tracking. Yup, you could fit one of my 18" scopes in a Volkswagon bug. I suspended the business a while back due to some physical injuries. My husband may help me pick it back up when he retires next year. I also play the cello and even get paid for it on occasion. I suppose that makes it my only professionn at the time.

I'm only 54 years old, retired, and bored to death. That's why I'm picking up this hobby. I'm still doing astronomy, but I want to do something new and fun.

I own a company in online marketing. In the nineties I distributed computer products. In the eighties I studied technical computer science. What sticks is that I do something with computers and consequently people ask me if I can set up the beamer for them. Oh and in the nineties I competed in the Citroën Saxo Cup as a hobby but noone asks me if I can drive the car after they rob the bank or so. That would be sexy.

So basically I connect beamers.

I own a company in rehabilitation and nursing aids.
I used to make most of the custom build aids by hand myself, but more into reselling now.

I dont believe this poll is particularly accurate if you want professions.

As some of the guys have said, you missed IT for a start.

Then you have specific jobs such as doctor, but what about allied health people.

You have accountant and lawyer, what about all those who who work along side in within those industries.

Ok whinge over, just wanted to voice my opinion.

I voted for 'other' as I'm a manager in software development (oh for an 'IT' option), but I should perhaps have gone for 'journalist' as I used to be one of those in a previous professional life. That would have made me unique and special as there's zero votes there so far. Dammit.
