Aviation career advice

Hello I am from Pakistan looking to get into a flight school next year as soon as I finish my 12th grade but I've alot of questions so I'd list them here any answers would be appreciated

1)Should I go for expensive flight schools like L3/CAE( I want easa atpl) or cheap flight schools for integrated ATPL(A),L3/CAE have high student placements in airlines but will require me to sell a flat my mum gave me.

2)Being from Pakistan I hold no right to work anywhere except Pakistan where aviation is seriously F****D I want to get into an EU airline but they require an EU passport what do I do about that?

3) is it worth it to get a bachelor's first and train later (bachelor's in Pakistan can go up to 40k$ so I don't really want to do it) or should I move to US/EU for bachelor's and do modular side by side?

Thanks

Unfortunately, there really isn't anything you can do... without the legal right to live/work in the EU, none of the airlines there will consider your application. So, your only option is to figure out how to emigrate to an EU country and get permanent residence/citizenship. That is a process that is likely to take years (most countries have a minimum of 5 years to gain residence/citizenship). I'm not aware of any European airlines that offer visa sponsorship for foreigners.

Why dont you go to the US get an FAA licence. When you finnish transfer your licence to Pakistan and then apply for a Pakistani airline. There will be much less competition for that first job I imagine..

Sorry to say this but I don't think you will be able to work in the EU without any residence or visa.If you can afford an MPL try out for the Airarabia one.

He should investigate how he can put himself in a position to work for some one like Emirates or perhaps Turkish Airlines.
