Not the ancestral genetic heritage, neither the skin tone will stop you. But the emotion behind the quote above might.

Self-isolation excercise 1: Never let them drag you down to their level. Whether or not the swift retort was actually due is completely irrelevant, that's for the person's parents to handle. As they say, respect is something you give.

Remember, your intention is not to join a cadet scheme. Your dream is to become a trusted captain to whom one day colleagues will come for advice on topics both professional and personal.

Opposing one wrong with a larger wrong just to show you're better at it is the devil whispering, and I could not be more serious about this.

The IMF is saying global GDP will shrink by 3% constituting the most severe recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

22m Americans have filed already for unemployment benefits.

if these numbers donít give you a hint of whatís going on in the world, then I would advise you to be careful, watch the markets and decide when things start to settle (we are nowhere near that moment yet).

Futurepilot. You see the way you are replying to the posts show how bad your attitude already is. You won't make it. Attacking instead of trying to discuss and express your point of view. Bad attitude. Nobody will like to fly with you. You are exactly the kind of person that likes to blame others instead of working on yourself. Your high school diploma won't help you and won't impress anyone. But go ahead and blame it on your "arab appearance".

Your whole approach to your "dream" is wrong. Who the hell has as a first question, a question about race?

Pathetic....

FP 1991

I think that you might benefit from a psychological assessment. There are various tests which can be conducted by a qualified person such as 16 PF.
You need to fall within the normal range otherwise training will be a futile gesture.
In the meantime take a chill pill.

As you have gathered, ppruners consider that this is not the time to commence training, as C-19 has completely destroyed any prospect of junior birdmen being employed for quite sometime.

How long? Ask that question again at the start of 2021 when Crystal Balls might become less opaque.......

I don't think you should take such comments to personal, specially not on these forums, many will give you a blunt and honest answer, it might not be the answer you was hoping for, which will make it sound even worse for you.

The truth is I do find your title slightly presumptuous, I am not saying racism does not exist, however during the job selection process this is very unlikely to stop your career in most of Europe, unless of cause you make at an issue yourself.

The truth is that the aviation world is in crisis, I am not going to repeat what has been written before, but just look at today, 1500 pilots lost their jobs, few days ago 256 pilots lost their jobs, some weeks before that FlyBe went bankrupt, and now nobody knows anything what is going to happen over the next 3 - 4 months, one thing is for sure, even when companies start flying again, it will be many years before there will be new jobs available, at best maybe from 2022, 2 - 4 years is not an unreasonable time now before there will be any chance of new low hour pilot jobs.

So best advice now, don't rush, work slowly towards your ratings, save your cash, and wait to see how the market will change over the next 12 months.
I am suspecting people will not be travelling like before, for some time unfortunately.

You are 28 and still got plenty of time, and as for the racism issue, don't make it an issue yourself, and you will be fine. Stay level headed, do your best, and try to just stick to your professional attitude, never discuss politics and religion during your interview or while working, there are plenty of other things to talk about in life. Some get easily offended and some don't care, but life is to short to have to worry about such things while working. Do that in your own time, if you feel the need.

Hi FuturePilot,

With all due respect sir, I doubt that username will ever come to bear fruit. Yes, I am a 'commercial pilot' in case you feel the need to ask me the same thing.

From your responses here I would not show up for work if i knew you were going to be my colleague for the day. I would also report you to the company (it will never get that far though, the chief pilot or someone from management/HR will see something is not right well before).

My background is also of an ethnic minority, my name is not european. I never considered it to be an issue. I never thought about it, nor did my employers. There was never any reason for it to be, the most that happens is someone asks me where it is from (ancestry not too distant from your own self). So no, background does not count one jot.

However it absolutely counts that you seek to pick an argument wherever, that you seem to have this urge to prove yourself and knock down anything and everything, anyone who you suspect (via a clearly paranoid thought process) to be 'attacking' you, even if they are not. People have given you decent advice, you need to listen.

If your posts mean anything, you are too aggressive to occupy a pilot's seat. Can you take criticism? This thread suggests you cannot, how will you be during flying training? during line training? Especially that you will be on the older side of the spectrum, likely finishing training into your 30s, another few years to actually get a job in the climate. I hate to generalise, but the older people tend to come across more difficulties and need a lot more correcting than the younger guys who just suck it all up, the brain don't work the same. Are you going to fight with everyone who corrects you? You'd be kicked out a sim quicker than you can say the word.

You need to be able to have a laugh too, laugh at yourself, loosen up. People make jokes about themselves and each other all the time in this job, it's all light hearted fun. No bad intentions.

Good luck.

Jumbo gets it, 33 years at my airline started at 28, different color, one of the shortest pilots out of 12,000 ( no I wasn't hired because of my background to fill a quota) don't look for disadvantaged excuses if you as a pilot screw up, let your flying do the talking to the very very few that will judge you on your appearance. Attitude is everything !

That worked for me.

Best of luck !

As a female pilot from a low socioeconomic background who has been involved in aviation since I was a teen, I have seldom experienced any issues. Work hard, respect your peers, don't take yourself too seriously and remember, LADIES and gentlemen are involved in this amazing industry and on PPRuNe - just poking fun at your opening post
As for a cadet programs, I really don't think it will happen. As many here have mentioned, go your own way and you will find a path. Good luck!

futurepilot, you should be thanking Jumbo744 for those wise words of caution. As a trainer I can tell you that there is nothing worse that a candidate can do than making excuses for their poor performance. And the worst excuse you could possibly offer is Racism.

You might want to think about your CRM skills, with reference to your last response.

Everything can be summed up to this post I think. Treating others with respect (the most basic thing in life, even though too many forget about it) is not replying to their advices with such sentences. People here take on their time to help you, so being patronizing won't be of any help nor will it inspire sympathy. We are very happy to know that you can speak 4 languages, just bear in mind that there are excellent pilots who only speak 1, and for sure people who speak 10+ but could never be able to fly.

ņ bon entendeur

P.S. : And anyway, your intelligence and ability to succeed in aviation is not represented by your final high school average. (In France 15/20 is obtained by 20%+ of the candidates...)

Gentlemen there was a rather lengthy and descriptive post from OP that is no longer visible for all the good reasons. Further comments are completely futile in my opinion, I sure as hell regret getting involved. The quote about pork wrestling comes to mind.
