Hello Everyone!

Airline Employee Career - 6 Career Tracks


?*25MAR2020 -- Career Files updated but having some issues with Sims going to work. Stay tuned for more updates.
18AUG19 -- Career Files Updated
19APR19 -- While I have updated my careers using this method and uploaded the new files here, for those careers that aren't updated right away while we wait for the updated Create-a-Career tool, there is a workaround for fixing careers that are missing text because of the most recent update that anyone can do regardless of whether or not you are a creator , with the use of Sims 4 Studio by midnitetech posted HERE. Thank you to MTS member Dero for bringing that to my attention!

This is a 6 track career, which means, once you complete the first 3 levels of Airline Employee (basically as a travel agent), you have 6 careers to choose from, each with 7 levels of their own. You will work for Sim Air, referenced from Sims 2 creator crocobaura, for continuity.

If anyone would like to translate the job descriptions in the second spoiler below, to any other language, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated!

You may choose any of the following 6 tracks once the first 3 levels are completed:

Station Attendant - be the one who handles passengers' baggage and cargo
Airport Customer Service Agent - check-in and manage boarding of passengers
Cargo Customer Service Agent - attend all computer aspects of cargo transport
Pilot - fly the planes and ensure passenger safety
Flight Attendant - ensure safety and comfort of all passengers during flight
Mechanic - maintain aircraft safety

Please remember, I have taken many liberties with these careers, even though they are actual jobs in the real world. For example, the wages are set to match the game's precedent, and even though the Station Attendant, Cargo Agent, and Airport Agent career tracks have levels, they are not actually levels in the real world, but are regular job functions, and some of the names of those levels come from my imagination, while others are actual positions bid for on the job, which is usually done every 6 months. I have performed many of the Cargo Agent and Airport Agent jobs in the real world, as I worked for a major Canadian airline for 12 years.

Being a travel agent is not a requirement to work for an airline, but it is a great job with lots of perks of its own in the real world.


The first two levels of the Mechanic career track are obviously not real, even though the rest are based off of actual career courses offered by State University Civil Service System.
Pilot levels 2,3 and 5 are derived from real certifications as described by Phoenix East Aviation.
The description for the Flight Attendant career track comes mainly from College Grad Flight Attendant Career Information. You will also notice a not-so-big jump in pay between a couple of the Flight Attendant career levels, based on the fact that a senior flight attendant will make more than a junior flight attendant, even on smaller aircraft.

All of the appropriate links are provided in the credits, and I encourage anyone interested in an airline career in real life to check them out.

Many of the career tracks require great focus, so I recommend using my Super Keener Trait when creating a Sim who you know will be attempting them, or use a cheat to give that trait to your Sim already in game.

I'm not sure why but when my sim goes to work, it glitches and keeps my sim at home. The icon above the sim head says sim at work but when looking at the work/profession tab, it just lists the job and when the job starts (instead of saying how long the sim has been working). Any help is appreciated. Very excited to play this new profession!

I would love the help! The job descriptions in the second spoiler are what need translating. And a couple of other lines that I can ask you for after.

Thank you so much!

I wonder if there is a conflict with another mod. Although I'm not sure how because I haven't actually added any new mods to the career. Could you please try removing it from your game, redownloading, and putting it back in your game? Maybe there was a glitch during download.

Also, DmitryMalfatto here on MTS has a Mod Conflict Detector should you want to check for any conflicts.
