So you want to be a pilot

If you have reached this far on this web site we think you might be a bit serious about a career in aviation.

We have therefore added a few “more serious” links for you to consider.

The first link is from;

The HONORABLE COMPANY OF AIR PILOTS incorporating Air Navigators (formerly GAPAN);

Their website is http://www.airpilots.org

They have produced “Specialist Document” entitled “So you want to be a Pilot 2012” which can be viewed here  http://www.airpilots.org/file/index.php?fileid=499

its now a CD. Should you like a CD then you will need to write to

The Honourable Company of Air Pilots, Cobham House,9 Warwick Court, Gray’s Inn, London WC1R 5DJ

 

A second good site is;

www.flying-start.org

Here you can look to choose either “Military” or “Commercial” flying and via a number of pages you are stepped through what is involved and more importantly if flying is “right for you?” – or “are you right for flying?”. Always very important before you decide to fork out a load of money on flying training.

 

A third link to look at is;

Probably the only other website that you need to view is

http://www.careersinaerospace.com/home-page/welcome.html

Interesting reading?

Whatever you do, do not give up, and keep trying, and trying again, as being persistent does pay off, and always remember one door may close, but another will very likely open up instead.

YES wishes you all the very best in whatever career in aviation you choose to pursue.
