Any Pilots or keen flyers in here?

I have a real passion for flying. I don't know what it is, but I do.

I have always wanted to be a commercial air pilot. Since I was a little nipper. I always dismissed it because I was never the best in the class, and, I have a beer belly which must make me physically unfit.

Anyway, i've recently been doing some research into training programmes and easyJet seem to offer quite a good sceheme through CTC.

I think i'm going to apply anyway, I am sure I won't get anywhere but theres no harm in applying - but are there any pilots around here? Anyone in the aviation industry?

Just want some stories on what it's like to fly a 737 or something. It must be amazing. Any tips? Advice? If not, anyone know where I could look?

You have to be 19 to apply... so that gives me just under a year to cut all my hair off, loose some belly and gain some skills Wink

Anyone know me here have any opinions on whether they would trust me up in the flight deck?

Why so negative, if you really want to do it you will!

So long as you get me into on Glasgow on time and the flight back's cancelled (only joking on the cancellation)

hmm then you truly would be Cap'n Liam Martin

Edit: A Beer Belly at 18 :?: :shock:

Yes I know... I follow the news carefully... It has been a bit worrying of late... perhaps pilots are getting a bit complacent with the 737 Wink

However, you might also be interested to know that there are never less than 1,900 in the air and one takes off every 4.5 seconds.
