Professional Pilot Training (includes ground studies)A forum for those on the steep path to that coveted professional licence. Whether studying for the written exams, training for the flight tests or building experience here's where you can hang out.
stay away from these schools, there is no job at the end anyway, what's the point?
you need JAA 500h on type just to get an interview.
really guys, if you want have a life, do something else. stop playing with planes in the sky, you just waste fuel for nothing. airlines are not interested by pilots learning in the States. Airlines dont need pilot for the next 8 years. There are tons of pilots already waiting to get a job.it s true!
Helping a friend navigate through the maze of Flight Schools in the US, he's looking into getting his FAA Certificates firstly on top of his already existing JAR PPL, eventually looking into converting to a JAR CPL. I am fully aware of all the IR stuff not being done in the US, I was just wondering if anyone could remind me of which JAR FTOs in the US should be avoided at all costs, I seem to remember that one was in Ormond and the other in California, can anyone confirm? Both used to run their business under a different name before shutting and reopening a while later.
If it was Rotary then the answer would be pretty straight forward but I haven't been following things as closely on the Plank front.
Hey lads im going over on the 10th of July to do my ppl/ night rating course. I visted the school last year and the equipment looked in tip top shape. Planes looked fresh and instructors were really friendly. Accomodation was nice nothing special but not bad. Their prices are the best ive seen around and will keep ye posted when im over there.
Anyone have any news on how things are going in 2012, heard some fantastic things about them!!!
Also has anybody got any success stories to share such as recruitment, jobs, location ect ect......On the site it states 6 Airlines recruited in 2011 from EFT Pilots and Emirates have already this year???? Is this a good trend for now?
Yeah thats what i meant, spoke to trevor out their who said that quite alot of guys that have been there 4-5 years ago have ended up on 777 emirates after having other aviation jobs. EFT seem all about quality!
They havent just rolled straight out of EFT and gone into emirates. Thats just ridiculous.....
Seems to be about 4/5 years with previous jet/Prop Airline Experience (which in itself is great) ...The point is that this doesnt seem to be just another USA flight school and that they seem to teach quality rather than quantity....
Wingreencard here we go again........You seem to demand proof from every single comment and opinion.......Leave your bitterness elsewhere, People want to use this forum for networking, guidance and assistance. Not to watch you step on every persons aspirations. Professional Pilot Studies this forum....why are you still trolling on here?
rmartingens, I forgot to state the obvious, yes the people I know who have moved out to the sand pit, all have met the minimum hours, which means it was several years ago since we attended EFT. To be fair if you look at ANY flight school they will have a section of their website showing where their ex students have gone to.
hi 1sky2 i will go to EFT for hours bulding and JAA CPL MEP could you please send me any contact details of the good flight instructor that you havd been with . As i planning to finish with the min time possible.
