Many people dream of a career as a pilot. It is an exciting career with unlimited growth potential. A pilot is a career with great earning potential, and an exciting career with the opportunity to see the world; both on and off work.

A pilot almost always joins an airline as a first officer. Although a candidate usually joins as a first officer, a lot has to be accomplished first. One must first decide they want to become a pilot, and then obtain the proper training.

An expert career councillor from HM Aviation will first discuss the career goals with the individual. The person will then undergo an interview and receive ground school and simulator training to prepare them for flight trainng in Canada, the United States, South Africa or New Zealand. The opportunity to train in another country is an experience so many dream of, but so few have. After completion of flight training, HM Aviation prepares the students for the entire selection process of an airline. After aptitude testing, simulator evaluations and interviews, the candidate is ready to join the airline as a first officer.

The candidate will usually join an airline as a first officer on an aircraft such as the Boeing 737 or Airbus A-320. Many join airlines on aircraft such as the Dash-8 or Q-400. As a junior first officer, most candidates will start off on domestic routes and work their way up to international routes. After some experience, and when the candidate has proven the self, they will have the opportunity to upgrade to captain.

HM Aviation offers an excellent program leading to the airlines. There has never been a better time!
