Becoming a commercial airplane pilot in the USA “Flying an airplane is nothing like driving a car. It requires a very high level of skill. It literally takes years to acquire the skills necessary to fly commercial jets”- Shem Malmquist The process of becoming an airplane pilot for major commercial airline is very long process and requires very intensive training for many years. Before getting to fly the big 500 passenger aircraft you need to learn how to fly the 4 passenger planes. There are a few ways you can become a pilot the most common ones are through the Air Force and in a Private Flight School. Many of today’s pilots are actually veterans of war who learned how to fly in the ARMY or in the Air Force and are able to work for commercial airlines. Becoming a pilot in the armed forces has its bad things and some great things. While learning to fly in the armed forces, you get to fly the best aircrafts available, you get a career, you can retire after 20 years of service, plus you get your flying certificates for free. But there are also the sacrifices, you are risking your life continuously if you are deployed for combat, and you need to serve some minimum years after finishing your degree. But after all it’s a great way to become a pilot.
