Hi everyone!

If I want to become a pilot, what are the requirements? What do I need? Do I have to be a University Graduate?

Also, what trainings do I need? What are the application procedures?

Hope to hear from you guys soon!

You can also go the the airlines website and find out more there. Most European airlines will pay for you to complete training. Aer Lingus will, as well as Lufthansa.


Long live Aer Lingus, the Flying Shamrock!

You have to know how to fly a 747 in order to fly one. Keep that in mind.

UnitedAirline:

You will have to gain experience. Do you currently have a licence or rating on any aircraft? Im guessing no. Airlines only take the very best.

Also, please stop with the "ive been here longer than you" and "ive got more respected users than you" as you said to wishihadalife its very babyish!!


If you really do want the info. You can go to www.qantas.com.au and go to employment.

Tim:


Airlines DO take the best. I am sure I am capable of doing the work.  Smile The main problem is......... Hong Kong does not provide that many opportunities for those who are interested in flying a plane.

Let's have a go! But let me first find out the procedures as well as qualifications of becoming a pilot.

Well, I don't see why people have to ask you to leave. Isn't that what you call mature Tim?

Just my 2 cents.

I don't think so pal.

So... I will stay and gain as many respected users as I can in the future.  


Good for you. A respected users list is the most important thing in the world. My self-esteem will be crushed if I don't have as many respected users as you do.

This site might give you some answers to your questions

http://hometown.aol.com/atelierdsn/ups.html


First, get a degree. If you want to fly the right seat of a 74 you need a degree. ERAU is a good school if you don't have a degree.

Second, get all your ratings with NO lapses. Comair acadamy and Flight Safety INTL. air good for this and will help with jet time.

Third, build flight hours especially PIC time.

I could go on but the 3 things I posted will help get you there. DON'T get discouraged because you probably won't start out flying a 747 and making $$$. It is a tough road but if your persistant and determined it will eventually pay off for you!

"How long does it take from training to becoming a pilot flying for an airline?"


Hey Bud, in most cases, it takes a VERY long time to become a 744 pilot. It's hard enough to get hired by an airline. Then you have to start at the bottom of the list. I think it takes pilots +10 years to make it to the 744 once they are hired!

I'm not sure about other countries, but I know most US airlines require you have have an ATP before you even get hired! To get the ATP you have to have 1500 hours of flight time.

It takes a really long time. Don't rush things, your day will come soon enough!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
