And you want advice on how best to go about it? Or where to train?
Or how to become a Professional Pilot? Or what sort of job you might get with your shiny new Professional licence?
Well, you're not the first - and you won't be the last.
We've been asked those and similar questions many times, and have gathered the answers together in a goldmine of information and advice given by professional pilots (and those still in training) from all over the world. It's the best single source of world-wide information you'll find on the internet - or anywhere else.
Just click on the link below and you'll find a list of the most frequently asked training questions with links which will take you to the relevant discussions.
It will save you searching through past threads to find answers to your questions - and save us answering the same questions over and over.
If, AFTER reading the information and advice already posted, you still haven't found the answer to your question, ask it on an EXISTING THREAD relevant to your query.
Do NOT start a new 'training' thread unless unless it's absolutely necessary - which it almost certainly won't be.
We're a welcoming and very friendly bunch BUT, if you start a new thread asking a question which has been asked many times before without bothering to read the answers already given to the same question, IT WILL BE REMOVED.
Just to clear up a statement on a previous thread. The North Sea is NOT just for ex mil pilots with 1000's of hours! My company or should I say he company I graft for have in the past and quite recently taken on low time (low 100's) pilots and they're doing just fine. If you're looking for a settled work pattern, loads of hours and top of the industry salary then give it a go

is this rotary or fixed wing? I only ask because I am not aware of any helicopter school in South Africa which can do UK JAA conversion and, as far as I know, Oxford Aviation Training ceased helicopter training a few years ago.
I am fairly new to your forum- I did read through all of the FAQ (clicked the link)- but I have a fairly general question that I did not see covered there. Please forgive me if this question is a repeat or one that was covered on the FAQ that I missed.
Just recently out of the military and am looking for a good, reputable heli-school in/around the San Diego area? Anyone in the SD area have any recommendations/suggestions. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
