EASA vs FAA: How difficult is it to become a commercial pilot?

Teaches you everything to go from zero-hours to flying a jet (probably a 737 or an Airbus A319/320) in about 15 to 18 months. It consists of 6 to 8 months of theory where you don’t fly and just study (although, there are schools where you fly and study the theory simultaneously).

The EASA theory consists of 14 different subjects divided in 3 modules ranging from air law to aerodynamics, human factors and even meteorology. After completing all of these subjects and passing 14 tests with at least 75% you have a frozen EASA ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot License). Frozen basically means you have to fly 1500 hours in 5 years to earn your Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate or your exams will expire and you will have to do all them again.

OH NO! My child wants to be a pilot

Wayman Eduardo | Apr 19, 2017 |

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” Every parent has asked this question. She wants to be a veterinarian, or he wants to be a video game designer. We all hope for doctors, lawyers, and engineers but, how do you respond when they say “pilot”? Many kids say that right after their first flight on vacation. They see the uniform, the trip up to the cockpit and all the buttons and blinking lights. Many forget later, but the special few ones keep saying pilot over and over again, despite the computer programming camp and the piano lessons… they keep saying pilot. If that is the case, congratulations, you have raised an Aviator.
