Steve Jordan's office is 400 feet above the ground. As a banner tow pilot, Jordan flies advertisements along the beaches from Cape May to Sandy Hook, New Jersey.
"I grew up coming down to the Jersey shore watching these planes all over. I knew I always wanted to be a pilot, and it's a great way to build the hours I need to become an airline pilot," Jordan said in an interview with CNBC's "Power Lunch."
The best part for Jordan is that he gets paid for it.
"Most of us are newly minted commercial pilots. So we went from paying for all of our flying to all of a sudden getting paid. So anything we're getting is pretty good for us. The first year you make 22 dollars an hour, your second year you make 25 dollars an hour, and your third year and from then on you make 30 dollars an hour," Jordan said.
