You dont need any hours to get into the flying schools, whoever told you that was way off the mark.......what you do need is plenty of money and the right attitude!

No its not true. If schools wouldn't take you without hours how would you get the hours in the first place?
We who fly do so for the love of flying. We are alive in the air with this miracle that lies in our hands and beneath our feet.

Its safe to say that the information on some 'career' sites about how to become a pilot are gravely wrong and lack research.

Anyway long story short there is no minimum hours requirment to join a school...

Alrite Ciaran...
Im about to sit the L.C. 2006 and was in a similar situation to yourself 3 years ago...I didnt know what subjects to choose.
I went with my instinct and chose the subjects i liked and felt i can do well in,because if it does come to your results,its better to get an A in biology for example than getting an E in Physics or engineering.
Sure these subjects may be a little helpful but by no means necessary..thats what flight school is for!
All you need is money(unfotunately) and A LOT of determination..
Best of Luck!!!
