To work in the cargo business you will have to be flexible. I am usually away from home between four to seven days, however our rotations last from one to twelve days. Some of our flights are only 30 minutes long, while others will take ten hours. At our destinations we usually have a rest time of one or two days, but it can be something between ten hours and five days. Anything is possible and that is what makes the cargo flying interesting as well.
