I want to start on my dream of being an airline pilot. But I am worried about the costs of starting. How much is it to just get the private pilot license? Are there any tricks or tips you guys may have? How about loans? Are they a good way? Thanks

Well man dont be surprised when I say it is going to be alot. how old are you? Do you have a degree? Basically the better quality training will be more, there are so many ways to do it! You can go full time and hit the regionals within 2 years or go the long route and take up to 4 years. Give me some more info and I will be willing to give you some ideas.

Hi, it usualy costs 80-100 USD$ for an hour of flying in something like C172. I have started saving $ already.

I have also researched that very topic. I first suggest you take an intro. flight which usually runs around $65CDN. If you like it, which I'm sure you will, you can start logging those hours. To get your Private Pilots License the cost is around $4,000-6,000CDN which includes everything.

Good Luck!!

1 get colege education.
2 private liscens costs about $4000-5000
3. Air transport (what you need to be an airline pilot) is about $50,000-75,000.
(Airlines don't pay this but they will certify you in their aircraft)
