A new blog post by a semi-international flight student

Last weekend while driving back from Miami my Uber driver asked me what I did for a living. I said; ‘I’m a student pilot right now’. To which he replied; ‘When I was younger I also wanted to be a pilot. But I never got to do it. Are you going to be flying jets soon?’.

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

Diving deeper into FAA & EASA courses

Yet another blog post by your favorite semi-international student!

Becoming a pilot can be difficult for some people, and a breeze for others. Are you up for the challenge? To really understand this question we have to know that there are a variety of different ways to become a pilot. It all depends of what country you want to fly in and where you are from. I’ll talk about the two most common types of training you can follow: EASA training - which is the European equivalent to FAA training - and the FAA training, which we do here at Wayman Aviation. I’ll even break these down for you so you can make the right decision in following the program that suits you best.

EASA training is easy… said nobody ever

Oh boy, the EASA way gives some people real nightmares. But why, and what is it? And how is the program structured?

The EASA, or European, way of becoming a 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.
