Why a sailor can have tattoo? Why not a pilot?
Pilot Career - Becoming a Pilot
Written by Capt Lim

Hi Captain Lim,

I am a student for the A-Level course and dream to be a pilot desperately. I plan to apply to become a cadet pilot with Malaysia or Singapore Airlines after I have finished my course. I am worried about my tattoo - it is just my name - five words behind my forearm. I do regret about it now.

My question is - can a pilot with tattoo be hired? Why a sailor can have tattoo? Why not a pilot?

Whether I can unfreeze my ATPL with single engine hours?

Hi Capt Lim,

I am a student in one of the Flying Academies in Malaysia. News regarding the increase in fuel price shocked me as most of the local airlines are stopping or reducing pilot recruitment. My questions are:-

a. Is it better for me to unfreeze my Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) before joining the airlines?

b. What position do I get if I unfreeze my ATPL and join an airline?

c. Can I fly single engine aircraft such as Piper 28 to unfreeze my ATPL?

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

Is it possible for a privately sponsored cadet pilot to be jobless after graduation?

Dear Captain Lim,

I heard rumors that chances of getting a job after graduation from a flying school is very low in Malaysia.

As for me, I am thinking of going to APFT privately. It will cost me around RM225K for the course and I definitely have to pay back the money (for the loan) at the end of the day.

So, is it possible for a private cadet pilot to become jobless after training? Any advice?

Thanks.

A medical student aspiring to be an airline pilot...

Hi Captain Lim,

I have just browsed through your site and it's really useful. I am a final year medical student and aspire to be an international airline pilot. I am due to graduate in March, 2010 and I need your advice in the following points:-

a. Which is the best of the best flight school for International students in the USA?

b. Is it better for me to work as an instructor to build up my hours or should I return to my home country and apply for the airlines as I do not intend to spend extra money and not being hired after that?                                             

c. As an Arab from Egypt, which airlines can I apply to?                                             

d. Does my medical degree be an advantage when I apply for a major airline or shall I consider having a degree in aeronautical science, for example, to stand a high chance of being hired?

Can a senior RMAF pilot bypass the normal progression to be an airline captain?

Hi Captain Lim,

You have done a great job for all aspiring pilots around the world. I really appreciate your kindness and hard work that you have portrayed through this informative yet useful website.

I have a question for you. My cousin who is in the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is considering becoming a commercial pilot. He has been serving for more than 10 years and is now a 28 years old air force pilot.

My cousin is confused about the ranking between the air force and commercial aviation. He is a Major but, can he take his rank into the commercial airlines (Malaysia Airlines), skip the natural upgrade process and become a captain?
