Letter to the Editor

Dear Craig,

I happened to come across your magazine and I was wondering how would I go about starting a career in aviation? I have always been passionate about flying and I never imagined it being possible to actually become an airline pilot.


Jen P.

Dear Jen,

The process to become a career pilot is a long and hard road, but if you are truly dedicated and willing to put in the time and effort it can be obtained! Having the passion is the first step to starting this wonderful career. Right now is an amazing time to get involved in the aviation industry because pilots are in high demand. It would be impossible and unjust to explain the variety and complexity of options to achieving this goal in this short letter, but I will say this; find a mentor to help guide you through the process. If you don’t know anyone who is a pilot, I would recommend getting one through Professional Pilots of Tomorrow. PPOT is a group of volunteer pilots dedicated to helping pilots achieve their goals. You can visit their site at theppot.org and connect with a mentor.
