Question regarding aviation.?

Should I go to a college to get my pilot certificates or get them at a local FBO at a much cheaper cost? My question is that, Wouldn't an airline recognize me more if I went to a reputable college like embry riddle versus than getting my certificates at some FBO near me? I did a quick calculation: Going to embry riddle for 4 years will cost a grand total of $281,000 USD. My parents agreed to pay for my Aviation training and meal plans/dormitory, so I will still have borrow around $150,000 (Tuition/books) in debt. versus Getting my pilot certificates at a local FBO, will cost less than $65,000. I know that going to a local FBO is a much better choice financially, but are major/regional airlines more likely to hire a graduate from ERAU than a person who got their certificates from local FBO?

It's really a pretty good idea. I'd check out tuitions at other colleges that offer aviation.

Embry Riddle is one of the most expensive colleges you can attend for flight. There are many others such as University of Cincinnati and University of North Dakota that offer college programs in flight and aviation. Airlines do want college degrees so it's really a pretty good idea. I'd check out tuitions at other colleges that offer aviation.

What are the best aviation subjects to start an aviation website with?


Really depends who you think your audience is. Lay people may just want to know how a plane flys or why certain things happen on commercial flights. Pilots may want to learn about skills/ratings they havent acquired yet, recent incidents.

PILOTS I NEED HELP!!!?


There are many good schools in the UK and CAE is a good one if money is no object. If you have a tight budget then you could consider some of the multitude of other training establishment, certainly up to PPL level. The downside to learning in the UK is that it can be a little slow and frustrating at times due to the inclement weather. However, don't be put off by that since you will learn significantly more about flying in the weather we have in the UK than any of the "fair weather fairies" that learnt in a climate of continual sunshine. When the time comes and you get your commercial pilot job, your new employer won't be too pleased if you told them you can only fly when the sun is shinning. learning to fly in the UK gives you a good grounding and experience that you can take with you anywhere in the world.

Do you need to know all the IFR approach and stuff to get your PPL?


If you're going for a Private Pilot Single Engine Land (PPSEL) certificate you don't need to know anything about IFR approaches. You will learn to fly traffic patterns and all the maneuvers and procedures required for that and for safe flight, learn how to navigate, and learn about airplane systems. You can get a huge head start by looking at websites and you tube links from places like Boldmethod.com, MzeroA.com, and UND aviation.

The FE'ers simply believe that photos, videos etc are hoaxes. :))

Why do all transmissions between air traffic controllers and pilots have to be in English?


English has been established by the ICAO as the universal language of aviation. It was necessary to establish one language for international flights to ensure safe and understandable communications world wide.

Am I too late to become an airline pilot?


Many colleges offer flight training. Two that come to mind are UND and University of Cincinnati but there are many others. You might look into that as most airlines want a degree also. Regional airlines pay is garbage but you get raises pretty quickly as your time builds.

How can i get my pilots license?


Go to your local airport and talk with an instructor. That doesn't cost anything and they'll be happy to answer any of your questions. You can go for a sport pilot license first because it's the quickest cheapest way to get in the air. Then if you "catch the flying bug" you can progress to a private pilot certificate.

How long might it take to earn a private pilot's license? And what sort of aircraft are you permitted to fly once you have one?


Flying becomes a passion if it's what you're meant to do. Once you take that first lesson you will never see an airplane again without yearning to be in that front seat. You should go up for an introductory flight at your local airport and see how it goes. You can get a sport pilot certificate to start if you want. It's cheaper and would meet the needs of most any recreational pilot.

You need a college degree and then join the military or go to a military college like the USAF Academy. They will put you through all the pilot training.
