ACP123 What Specialized Training Does An Airline Pilot Receive And Your Questions Answered

by CarlValeri on January 22, 2017

Welcome to a new episode! We are trying a new format, which is shorter and should lead to more episodes. Today we have questions about GI benefits, building hours towards a pilot job, and specialized training once you land that dream pilot job.

Also, the 2017 versions of the Aerospace Scholarships Guide will be out very soon. The new guides have many, many more scholarships than last year, as organizations offering scholarships are starting to contact us to get their scholarships in our guides. Keep watching the website for the 2017 editions!

In this episode we discuss:

  • Using your VA benefits to get your PPL.
  • Building hours towards a pilot job when you are working full time.
  • Pilot job opportunities once you’ve been hired.
  • What kinds of specialized training do pilots undertake?
  • Do airlines provide their pilots professional development?
  • Recommendations for a flight attendant working to become a pilot.

I just listened to ACP123 and [as always] really enjoyed the content and the new format (aiming to keep the podcast around 30 minutes). Well done! I thought it was well paced while still providing great information.
