Becoming a Pilot - The Inside Story

Hello there Captain!

It is nice to have the opportunity to send you an email! Well, I think I should introduce myself. I'm Glenn Gerald, currently 15 years old and I am from Sabah.

I bought your book 'Life in the Skies!' last December (2014) on my connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur to Vietnam and it was a fun and knowledgeable book for me. But sadly, I couldn't get your signature  However, on my flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu I met two of the flight's First Officers and I was able to get their signatures.

Captain, if possible, I would like to meet you one day as it is one of my dreams to meet the one who inspired me the most  

I still remember the part of your flight from Shanghai to Kuala Lumpur on the Boeing 777. You cancelled your flight that day because of the typhoon!

You know? That story really touches my heart. I should be like you to think about other's safety especially the words, “when a doctor makes a mistake, only one patient dies, while a pilot’s mistake would impact the lives of hundreds.” I really love all of your words!

Captain, I am on my way to take my PT3 this year. For my next year's subject, I need to choose my subjects for my future.

Can I ask you Captain? What are the main subjects that I should take to be a pilot?

Sorry if I disturb you for a moment. Your reply will be much appreciated!

Sincerely,

GLENN GERALD

Hi Glenn,

I am happy to know that you enjoyed reading my book and felt inspired after that. Of course it would be great to meet you if we are lucky to bump into each other somewhere, somehow!

Those words you mentioned were quoted from a doctor who is a friend of mine.

As regards to the subjects to take to become a pilot, you can find them in my Website here.  I have answered this question many times under the Category Pilot Career – look into the heading ‘Education’ and ‘Becoming a Pilot’ here 

For a start, you have to be good in English, Mathematics and Physics. For the rest of the other requirements, please read the FAQ in the above reference.

Wish you all the best in your future career.
