I’ve been thinking about this a lot in the past few days, it’s a shame training is so expensive in Australia. For me, all the pros outweigh all the other cons! Except for away from family and friends :/
Now this is a thread I need…I BADLY want to be a pilot, but like…idk…
And I’ve heard from many people that training for and becoming a pilot in India is much easier and cheaper compared to US, along with a solid starting salary (I’m born and bright up in the US, but my parents are Indian, and we recently moved to India, so I’m getting hopeful). Can anyone from India or US (or anyone else who knows) confirm this? Thx 😁
Yes there is, but Qantas is not offering it at the moment (not sure when and if they will) and Jetstar did one recently. Virgin Australia hasn’t seemed to do one for ages. I haven’t looked into other airlines yet except for Rex - where you also have to pay big time.
For example, I fly myself and sometimes my customers. Even though I don’t fly a commercial aircraft, I enjoy pilot life. I got a 5 year loan for my flight school, so that was pretty good. Meeting other pilots, getting front row seats to planespotting, learning about new aircrafts before others, that’s what I do.
