It really depends what country you live in. First I know the most about the US. I am not a pilot though.
|Quoting Lordanmol (Thread starter):|
To become a civilian pilot, what are the minimum requirements, pay, and how much does one pay in training school, and physical health.
For regional airline in the US you need your Twin Commercial pilot license and all ratings that come before. Twin, IFR ect.. CFI ratings also help but are not required. For a Major US regional minimum hours are around 1200 total time with around 150-200 Twin hours. And a commercial certificate, ATP is preferred but not required. IFR time is also necessary.
At a major US airline you would need all your ratings up to an ATP. You need to have around maybe 5000 total time as a minimum with atleast 1200 Turbine time and lots of Twin PIC, Turbine PIC is also important maybe around atleast 500 hours. Many people who go into the major might have as much as 9000 Hours with 2500 PIC Turbine. Also IFR time is very important and previous 121 experience.
If you pay for your own training weather it be at your FBO or and flight school it will cost atleast around $45,000 to get up to a commercial certificate. You can get training for free and get paided to fly for 8 years if you go to the Military. Now for Singapore if that is were you live I know Singapore has a program were they traing there pilots and you get in after alot of training.
Health you need to be in good health. Eyes need to be able to be corrtected to 20/20 and in good shape, No major problems, just overall good health. Eyes are what get most people from getting a Class one medical.
