Main Question or Discussion Point

Is anyone aware of any careers where a background in physics along with a pilot's licence and flying experience is advantageous? (Other than being an astronaut or test pilot!)

I imagine that air crash investigation might be one, but are there any others?

I live in the Seattle area, where Boeing is major employer. I don't work there but the skills of a physics degree would come in handy in many areas, like flight testing (instrumentation, e.g.), materials testing, software development, etc.

Probably many more areas that I can't think of, as well.
