You mean you need ADVICE with regards to pursuing a CAREER as a commercial Pilot ?

if you have +- ZAR 400 000 (USD 39000) I suggest 43 Air School in Port Alfred.
Its the quickest most efficient (definately not cheap) school around.

Ab-initio to Multi Engine CPL , with Frozen ATPL in under 24 months (if you are serious about it).

At this stage, considering what aviation is like, I would recommend becoming a hairdresser. Nothing personal!

There are soooooooooo many topics/threads/write-ups on aviation as a career, on this site, avcom, on every aviation site you can find, yet you ask such a broad and poorly thought out question.

Id recommend you look into making a life in the general labor industry. If you can not run a quick search online and do some simple research, well you probably lack the mental facilities to fly an aircraft.

Just making a VERY obvious observation.

Also the poorly worded sentence and use of "pls" vs please, well that's not a good sign ether.

Look, the guy has ONE post, for the amount of time it took him him to register on this site and post his stupid question, he could have easily run a search and found the answer... hell I bet its even a "sticky" on one of the sub forums here.

Any institution will do the trick. Price around. It makes no difference to future job prospects as to where you learnt to fly. Having said that you probably will receive the best level of training from someone like 43 Air School in Port Alfred.
As far as qualification goes the minimum in order to have a satisfying career for most would be an ATP license.

Go for it flying is the most rewarding career one can follow. I can promise you those moaning about aviation would be moaning in any other career they choose.
Their visions of greatness born from years of false, overinflated praise, for mediocre to poor performances from parents and teachers, have left them with shattered dreams that never where to be to start off. They have no idea what it takes to build a career from hard work.
Good Luck

Some English lessons might not be a bad idea.

I hope impactmrkt was just takin a piss out of everyone with this thread, tryin to elicit some predictable responses. If you were being serious, then there is little hope for you. Like come on man, your in bots,, (or are you?) no better place to ask around about becoming a pilot.
