Fueling mid air is more than likely only done as a last resort...

Don't worry...one rating would be stretching for me too! I more meant if I were in the position now I'd probably go for an Airbus rating over a 737 one unless Ryanair looked like the only option of flying in Ireland for an airline. Surely these guys can use the fact that they are rated to get a job ...

No I am not thank goodenss. I heard that went very sour for some of the people who signed up to that scheme, when Air Asia decided they were going all Airbus in the future and didn't need anymore 737 rated pilots, and left a few young guys with a self funded rating, no hours on type and no Job. thi...

Captains of some big wide bodies make 130K + a year....you probably won't make that working for the AC. That's one thing to consider!

There's a similar thread to this with more replies here:

Bear in mind you'd want to be fairly fit to get into the Air Corps too. The other way which hasn't been explained too much because of the military talk is the 'ol pay for it yourself. Tomorrow at 12pm I'm starting that route..! If all goes well I aim to do a lot of stuff here in Ireland, hopefully g...

Thanks for the reply Terminator.

It does seem do-able. There wouldn't be as many people doing it if it wasn't.

Need to get the PPL out of the way first off anyway.

Walking before I can crawl a bit!!

Yep it seems to be one of the things which is quite limited in this country. Anyone know anything about Waterford - do they do a course in it? My dad has done many courses via distance learning so I could get help/advice from him but learning something like weather without anyone there to help seems...

ATPL in Ireland?

Hi lads...planning on doing the PPL and the whole works via modular route here at home as much as possible. The idea of distance learning scares the daylights out of me as I'm just not one for sitting down for 5 hours a night and studying (might as well be honest!) and I'm not sure I could hack the ...

Never felt sick on Airbuses, 737s or 747s and I've flown to NZ and back so I've been in the air a long time so I'm hoping I will be the same in the light a...
