tender Posted July 18, 2007 Report Share Posted July 18, 2007 How does anyone get started in this Industry? How do you select where to take your training? What are realistic expectations for the first couple years (Income)? These are all questions that I've been asking myself for the past few weeks. I am in my mid 20s, looked into training about 4 years ago in Ontario but the funds we're simply not available. I have since then invested to make sure I had enough to get the training, however now, more and more questions keep coming up; which is why I am now turning to all you seasoned pilots to help shed some light on this dream career! I am considering two schools south of Montreal, QC area to be able to keep my current job and train part time however am wondering if I should just pack up now and move to BC to take the courses. How do I choose the school? Locations? Job offerings? Once I have my CPL and 100 hours under my belt, I get from other postings that I am not interesting to employer, therefore what should I expect my first few years to be? Will I make enough to live on simply being a pilot or will I need to work 2 or 3 jobs to make ends meet? Where should I look for jobs at that point? Any tips or expirences you would have to share, I would appreciate what everyone, no matter how many hours you currently have. Every pilot has to go through this however the answers to these questions when asking potential schools seem vague and biased in order to sale me on their school, I would rather get the opinions of the ones who have been through this.
