At the risk of being the harbinger of doom, if you go on to train and qualify as a low hours pilot you will be competing for jobs with hundreds/ thousands of other low hours pilots. Many of the competition will not have an OML on their medical, you need to seriously ask yourself why would an airline employ me over someone who does not have an OML on their medical?

If someone is already established and experienced in their flying career and they get an OML on their licence then I could understand that an airline would not want to lose their experienced staff.

Unfortunately there is no shortage of low hours candidates.

Sorry to appear so negative but just trying to inject some reality before you commit to spending an eye watering sum of your/ someone else’s money. If you do decide to proceed with your training then I sincerely wish you nothing but luck in your training and subsequent job hunt.
