Hi Capt Lim.

I love your site. Anyway, I aspire to be a pilot in the future . What course should I take up in the Polytechnic in Singapore?

Thank you.


Hi Saravanan, 

If you were to look at the requirements for SIA cadet pilots in my site, you would notice that they emphasize on English, Science (especially Physics) and Mathematics only in O and A Levels. It does not help if you are good in Aeronautical Engineering but is weak in the three basic subjects I have mentioned. Of course, Aeronautical Engineering or any aviation subjects would be an added advantage.

I want to be a pilot
hello Capt Lim:
My name is Carlos Costa, i'm an aeronautic engineer student in Portugal, however my dream always was spending my life flying as a pilot, unfortunatly i don't have enough money to fulfil it.
Do you have any idea how can i do it.
I have no problem in go to the other side of the world.
Thank you
Carlos Costa
