How much fuel would that be in pounds? Remember that the plane will need to get into the air, if it is too heavy it wont be able to takeoff. Also what if something happens that requires the plane to come back and land?

Not true. High marks will give you your choice of what you want to fly. So if you want to fly the F-22 make sure you get to the top 1% of your class. Same goes if you want to fly say the KC-135.

Those are the minimum requirements for kalitta. As you can see with 6500TT & 4000+ CRJ time you meet the requirements. It all really comes down to the interview and the impression you leave with the interviewer. I'm with United and it was not so easy to get with them. But once you're in its good.

It is MD11 not MD10! And the MD11 is a totally different airplane hence its own type rating. 737's are the same type but pilots still need to attend upgrade school if moving up to the max 8 from say a -200.

Start by creating a better impression and at least use a spell checker mistakes as simple as that on an aircraft could cause serious problems

space has put an end to this type of spy aircraft and cost to operate is very expensive

Becoming a commercial pilot does not *require* a college degree. And many folks are out there crop dusting, performing aerial photography, even teaching flying - all without a higher degree (and some probably without a high school diploma). However, it is NOT the path I would recommend. The higher up the ranks you climb, the more likely any particular institution (whether airline or other) is to want one - even if it really is not directly related to your flying work. With lots of entry level applications, it is just an easy way to weed out the bottom tiers. This is especially true of the airlines.
Also, do not forget that every commercial pilot flies at the risk of their Class II or Class I (the latter required for ATP "airline" flying) medical. I highly recommend that all pilots have a "backup" life plan for the day when they are no longer able to fly commercially.
There are two traditional routes to flying - military and civilian. The military will pay for you to learn to fly, and it is an excellent opportunity and career. But, you have to be accepted by them - and that means good physical and mental condition. And they are most likely going to want to see that you are on at least a path towards a college degree (ROTC, for example). Of course, they are also going to want a long-term commitment from you as well.
Civilian is usually "pay your own way" - at least for the beginning. You can get a pilot's license by working the drive-thru window at McDonalds (to pay for flight school), but it's a tough way to do it. And merely having a license is not enough - you need lots of hours (preferably in jets) to get hired by the major airlines. So that's a lot of time at low wages and strange times - or pay for more of your own training.
Lastly, some airlines do offer ab initio training (training from the beginning), but that is usually foreign (non-US) airlines offering jobs for their own countrymen. Lots of applicants, for a relatively few slots.
Bottom line: Flying is a wonderful career, but like anything else worthwhile - it takes lots of time and effort. If it is something you want to pursue, then don't be afraid of working long hours at perhaps multiple jobs to earn enough money to start getting your license. And then more hours and strange times at relatively low wages to make it into the airlines.

FGO to the RAF recruitment office and they will explain everything but you are still very young and reading your piece I think maybe very na?ve You cannot in this world just pick out the bits of jobs you want to do and expect company's RAF etc to tailor make jobs for you especially as you only want to use the RAF to save money!

Americans are more paranoid than the UK and also more likely to enter into conflict so they need to keep upgrading. Also as you may be aware Americans are obsessed with guns and killing why do you think so many children get slaughtered in their school;s As well as which the UK spends money on social care and the4 NHS Americans don't look after their poor they would rather have a "bigger gun"

I suspect that the idea of max climb plus glide is not a new one, and that, if it really were cost-effective on fuel, we would know about it.

Landing is one of the most complex part of flying especially when it comes to windy,rainy, snowy and foggy conditions. Point is to maintain the plan in straight line and bring it few feet above the grond and slow down its speed. When plan is unable to fly any more, bring it smoothly down on tires. And apply brakes

Aircrafts | Answered on Oct 09, 2018


There are navigation and softwares inside the cockpit so pilot can find easily as well as air traffic controllers will guide them so they can easily land there....
with regards,

They could. Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic without autopilot.

From a pilot's point of view, every aircraft comes from the factory with a checklist of things to look at specifically before every flight to ensure airworthiness. It's generally called a walk-around inspection, checking flight controls for security and condition, tire condition, engine for obvious problems. propeller, fuel and oil quantities. and many other things. The walk around also includes checking to ensure all required paperwork is there including weight and balance, airworthiness certificate, aircraft registration, operator's manual. etc. I would also check the log book to verify the transponder check was done within the past 24 months and the annual or 100 hour inspection is current. From an A&P mechanic point of view much the same applies, however I would look much closer at the maintenance logs for engine and airframe.
