About Pilot Rise - 6 Steps to Become an Airline Pilot
This page explains the steps to become an airline pilot. If you just want to fly for fun, you can stop at becoming a Private Pilot, but we recommend getting your Instrument Rating.
For each license you pursue, you will learn skills and knowledge needed to pass any tests. Each license requires a written test. After taking the written test and completing training, you will take a test called a checkride. The examiner first asks you questions on the ground, then once you pass the oral part, you go flying and show the examiner you know how to fly. It is very practical, and it is not difficult at all once we prepare you.
