How can I be a pilot?
Asked Jan 06, 2013
There are many more pilots than there are pilot jobs. This means there is intense competition for the available positions, and the pay rates are kept low by the excess supply. In addition, most of the desireable jobs require experience flying turbine (aka jet) aircraft, so civilian-trained pilots are at a disadvantage to pilots from the military. (Hint: if you want a good civilian pilot job, get the military to pay for your training.)

Most piloting jobs, especially early in the career path, will require long hours and spending a lot of time away from home. This can take its toll on family life. You will have the best chances if you are single with few, if any, familiy obligations.

I began my flying after I had already established a successful career in computers. So I am content to simply pay for my flying, and not worry about making it pay for me. But I don't want to discourage anyone who has a true passion from pursing aviation as a career. If this is your goal, then I wish you clear skies and tailwinds!

I welcome any comments, corrections, or suggestions for this article, and I'm happy to correspond with anyone who has any further question.

The entry level positions are underpaid due to the oversupply you mention but the top airline positions are paid very well. Military experience is valuable if you are lucky enough to get in the Air transport Command but there is little demand for fighter pilots in commercial aviation without retraining. The dilemma for a young person looking for a career is that the military puts you where they want you and commercial aviation is your choice.

Assuming you are asking about piloting an aircraft and not a waterborne craft:

To pilot a private aircraft, you have to take flying lessons from a qualified instructor and pass both written and in-air exams.

To be a commercial pilot, you should have a good background in math and graduate from a commercial aviation school. Google, "commercial pilot school."

Hello Guys! I am Juliet Hilton. I live in Uk I’m 42 Years old, am so happy I got my blank ATM card from Calvin Grayson. My blank ATM card can withdraw £5,500 daily. I got it from Him last week and now I have withdrawn about £350,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machine and there is no name on it because it is blank just your PIN Only. It is not traceable and now I have money for business, shopping and enough money for me and my family to live on. I am really glad and happy I met Calvin Grayson because I met Five people before him and they could not help me. But am happy now Calvin Grayson sent the card through UPS and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him right now, he is giving it out for an affordable fee to help the poor even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught or traced. I’m happy and grateful to Calvin Grayson because he changed my story all of a sudden. The card works in all countries that is the good news if you are interested in getting yours : email: [email protected]
