John Pullen con How to Be a Pilot: Private - Airline - Military (English Edition)Many dream of flying an aircraft. It may have been with you for as long as you can remember or it may have taken off when you visited an airport or attended a flying display. Whichever way it started, the dream of being a pilot has remained with you.
Unfortunately for many, it will remain just a dream because the idea of actually being in a cockpit as the pilot of a light aircraft, an airliner or a fast military jet may seem impossible to realise.
But it can be done. And one of the keys to this is to understand what is required, the training involved, the opportunities that exist for candidates from around the world and the cost. It might surprise you to learn that it is possible to become a professional pilot by spending up to $100,000 or nothing at all.
This book will guide you through everything you need to know about becoming a pilot. It can be as a private pilot flying for pleasure, a commercial pilot working for an airline or a charter company, a flying instructor or a military pilot flying fast jets, large transport aircraft or helicopters.
There are many routes you can take to become a pilot and this book will explain all of them. It will tell you what you need, such as education, age, medical fitness and language proficiency. Then you will learn about the different training modules – what is involved, how long they last and the costs. Finally you will see what opportunities there are for pilots to train in other countries and even combining careers such as military and then an airline.
And at the end of the book there is a World Aviation Authorities Contact List which gives you access to almost every county’s aviation authority where you can get up to date information on becoming a pilot anywhere in the world.
If you have ever dreamed of becoming a pilot, this is your first step.
