Sales guy for a medical software company. Best job ever. Slowly working towards a CFI rating so I can teach people to fly... but not until my kids are grown and out of the house.
Corporate and 135 Pilot.

I work in the airline business at a desk job managing air cargo. No, I'm not a ramper, but eventually the rampies do what I tell them to do. Every day at my desk, I have a front row seat at arrivals or departures out of 17-35 at MSP. That's how I got to thinking, "why am I down here, I should be up there!" And now I'm a 170 hour Private Pilot working on more advanced ratings.
I started my career in the back of a 206 too. Must be where taxi, um, limo drivers, come from.
My favorite too for 17 years...also flew the A-7D for 3 years before that.
That's what I flew before I made the transition to a 172.
(Seriously though... I'm in awe of your career).
cnc machinist / programmer
Chemistry teacher and football coach.
Apparently! Were you in ENG, too?? Not much landscaping to do in the back of a helicopter...
ENG? Oh wait I get it now. Actually I meant a Cessna 206 not a Bell 206. I was a camera operator in a mapping plane before I moved to the front seat after a number of years.
Ohhhh gotcha. Yeah, mine was a Bell 206 doing Electronic News Gathering (as they call it). We'll just stick with 206s, that makes a more interesting story

I get to go all over putting instrumentation on locomotives, freight cars and passenger cars, as well as rails to collect data to feed the simulation trolls at the office. I get to see the "wrong side of the tracks" in a lot of cities around the world. Why can't the railroads be in the nicer parts of town?
I've built and operated two (of the three) aviation themed hotels in America.
In other words, I am criminally insane, and broke, to boot.
I'm a lowly computer geek working for a bank. I do solutions development for UNIX, Linux and Windows systems monitoring on a bank that has somewhere upwards of 75,000 servers. I also run a sideline business selling crack -- er, I mean, kits -- to ham radio operators.
OK, so it's a small company. I'm really a dirt farmer on the frozen tundra of northern MT, along the Canadian border. But, I'm the CEO. And the CFO and the Director of Marketing, Director of Maintenance, Procurement Specialist, Production Manager and I sweep out the shop once a week, or so.
Being self-employed isn't too bad, but my boss is a jerk.
looks like im the only one that is making a living repairing planes Someday I might get smart and lose the passion and get a real job.

Grew up on the flight line. Dad used to run freight in PHNL with a C-45

Dialogue Coach for a local Porn producer. When you hear the "Oh Baby, yea baby, give it to me baby"...I did that. On-screen coaching is a hard job...

One more sideline and I'll need to be cloned to keep up...
