I have a plan to launch myself into a accelerated career in aviation. If this plan is realistic, if even possible, any input is greatly appreciated. So here’s my thinking:
- Go to this 4 year university ( I have one in specific picked out) and follow the Proffesional Pilot program and major in an aviation field.
- Graduate with my R-ATP and major in aviation field
- Fly for a airline my college is partnered with (for this example I will use Gojet, which the college is partnered with amongst others)
- In 12-18. Months upgrade to captain
- Fly for say a year and half as a captain
- Apply to the major airlines
I figure on flying an average of 83 hours a month as stated by Gojet’s website. I also figure that a year and a half will give me about 1,500 hours PIC in turbine aircraft. Most majors I see require a minimum of 1,000 PIC in turbine aircraft. The year I would be applying to the majors hopefully is expected to have a lot of mandatory requirements as well per airline pilot central.com
Maybe that would make entry easier?
