How to become as a pilot.

It's everyone's dream to fly an airplane in the young age. As they are growing some people forget it some still behind it. You can fly for your satisfaction or make it as a commercial pilot. Doesn't matter whether you are a young man or young girl for you to fly an aircraft you must have good English knowledge and good in mathematics along with good eye sight and medical fitness. When checking eye sight it will be important to cheek color vision as there are many people have this problem. There are three ways to get pilot training from flight training schools.


As a private Trainee pilot which you can start at the age of 16 (normally a pilot can fly till the age of 60) at a flying school or under an private pilot trainer. Here you are allowed to get to fly a single engine piston aircraft. After you passed the age of 17 and completed the training course you can have your own Private Pilot license(PPL).

To obtain a Private Pilot License, you must have completed 45 hours of flying time (However experience has shown it usually takes most students between 55-75 hrs.), 7 written examinations, pass a skill test and medical examination. This license can be achieved between six to twelve months period at a cost of US$ 12,000 (6,000 UK POUNDS), in Singapore around 20,000 - 30,000S$.And if you wish to fly in the night, you must take another certificate. For flying multi engine aircraft alone by yourself, you will need 70 hours as Pilot in Command, 7 hours theoretical instruction and 6 hours flying training. This PPL will allow you to fly for fun but will not allow you get paid.


Once you are sure that you are going to make money by flying, which is called commercial flying, you must get a Commercial Pilots License (CPL) or pass all of the theory qualifications and most of the flying qualifications for the Airline Transport Pilots License (ATPL). To follow this course you must show your Physics math and English ability. Commercial pilot license, Airline Transport Pilot License may take from 9 months to 36 months. for this you must choose a school approved by the civil aviation Authority. For commercial pilot you will need minimum of 150 hours flight training and for ATPL 195 hours of flight training.

You will be taught about aviation law, flight performance, planning, and principles of flight navigation, avionics, communications, meteorology and operational procedures.
You will get flight training in smaller aircrafts and in computer aided simulators.
Once you obtained your Commercial Pilots License you can fly for salary. You can carry goods in small aircraft, can do aerial photography, spray crops in larger farm fields, or can undertake a Flying Instructor Course to train people to get PPL and CPL standard.

With an ATPL license you are a great Pilot to fly. You can wait for good air lines to call you to fly their air crafts. To become as a Captain you must achieve 5,000 flying hours.
