Pilot Training

Since quite a lot of us on this forum would love to become pilots, do any pilots, past and present, have any good tips for getting in to the commercial industry?😊


Most important, check the requirements for airlines so what qualifications you need to join as a pilot. Don’t focus on flight school requirements as they only want your money and they don’t offer you a job…


Aernout when I mentioned working in Australia or NZ you said forget it as I need a passport? Do you mean getting through the system of selection of who they allow in because I have a passport already?

They will never invite you for selection / interview if you don’t have the passport. This are just a few examples :)

You mean an Australian passport?

Does college matter to become a pilot?

Do you mean like University?

Either one

I know that most airlines in the UK want you to preferably have a degree. I’m not sure about there though
