I recognise that you have a lot of experience and I absolutely believe that you already have thousands flight hour. From your experience we can see that you have ability to see the future of aviation industry especially job as a pilot.
In this modern life, there are a lot of difference and development in aviation, especially the aircraft technology. A lot of company, I believe that they start to develop cockpit less or unmanned aircraft for commercial (airlines).
I wonder, what is your opinion about this? How long does it takes from now, the airlines start to use unmanned aircraft?
And if it does happen (and I believe it will) then there will be no more job for the pilot. What would it be for the pilot?
I guess that’s my question to you. I hope you can help me out with this.
I am a keen and ambitious guy whose long life dream is to fly with an airline for a living. I'm a Singaporean who had just completed my military service and now looking for an aviation course to pursue my dream.
Today I went for a selection test for MPL with Qatar Airways as well as for the CPL. Sad to say I didn't quite made if for MPL and I have the options to agree and take on the CPL.
There are a couple of questions that is running through my head after the selection. Here goes:-
1. What is bothering me now is that what are the benefits of these two licenses?
2. Are there any academy that offers MPL course? (I applied for ST Aerospace Academy and CAE Oxford Aviation Academy does not have any MPL course open at the moment)
3. If I were to complete my CPL course what kind of airline can I fly with?
4. Will I be dealing with a huge open window of not being able to find an airline after completion of my CPL?
I'm really worried that my dream was to die right here. I want to pursue and live this lifelong dream- to be a pilot.
