How to become a pilot? Your question explored

How to become a pilot?

Pilot is a respectable profession, and usually comes with good pay, benefits and perks. There are 3 types of pilot licenses. By obtaining a Private Pilot License (PPL) you can fly planes throughout Malaysia carrying passengers but without charging fees for your services. Here, you become a private pilot.

One can work for a commercial airline after obtaining Commercial Pilot License (CPL) – you are a commercial pilot. And finally, you can fly as a captain on a large aircraft with Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) – you are airline transport pilot. Pilots with CPL and ATPL are classified as professional pilots.

Another important element consideration by a pilot wannabe is the cost associated. Here, the cost will depend on the type of licenses. A Private Pilot License (PPL) can cost between RM26,000 to RM28,000, while a Commercial Pilot License (CPL) may vary between RM150,000 to RM170,000 which exclude the accommodation.

Getting Pilot License

Presently, there are more than 10 flying clubs in Malaysia. The flying clubs can basically conduct only PPL (Private Pilot License), which will be according to the approved syllabus for flying certification. On the other hand, there are 5 approved flying schools in Malaysia today, with more to come. These are flying schools and academies that offer different training structure, environment, classroom size and aircraft types. You can become a commercial pilot by enrolling into these flying schools.

Getting a license is one thing. Keeping it is another thing.

To keep your current license, you need to perform a minimum of 3 take-offs and landings within a period of 3 months. The take-offs and landings must be of the type of aircraft you are entitled to fly. Additionally, you will need to take flight test which will be assessed by DCA (Department of Civil Aviation Malaysia) approved Authorized Examiner. This is imperative as to demonstrate your continuous level of competence and maintaining the required standard of flying.

Private Pilot

Most pilots in Malaysia get the PPL (Private Pilot License) first, and then either stays as a private pilot or pursue licensing for commercial pilot. A full PPL license requires at least 45 hours of flying, but most of the students will go up to 70 hours before taking the test. You can enroll yourself into one of the flying clubs, where you will can apply for a Student Private License, SPL. This works just like the driving school’s ‘L’ license, where you can fly instructional (dual) sortie with an instructor as a company.

A PPL can be obtained when you reach a minimum age of 17 years old. Getting the PPL license will require you to sit down for medical, practical and written assessments. The medical assessment, which is the pre-requisite (that means you cannot get the PPL license by failing the medical test) encompasses the general health, hearing and eyesight tests.

Commercial Pilot

How to Be Pilot and Get Pilot LicenseCurrently, there are about 2500 pilots holding the CPL and ATPL licenses in Malaysia. These are professional pilots which are paid to do their flying job. They can either fly as pilot-in-command on aircraft with only one pilot, as well as a pilot or co-pilot on an aircraft consisting a number of crew. A Commercial Pilot License, CPL can only be obtained by those who have reach a minimum age of 18 years.

Just like the PPL license, CPL license requires you to sit down for medical, practical and written assessments. A minimum flying hours of 200 must be met before one can take the licensing test. Qualification-wise, you will need to have at least Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) with credit in English, Mathematics and a science subject. No license will be issued to those who fail this qualification requirement.

A pilot with CPL may pursue getting the ATPL license by enrolling again in a flying school and meet additional flying hours and another round of assessment. ATPL license is only applicable for those who are 21 years old or above, and has a total flying hours of 1500 in an aero plane. APTL also comes with 7 different written examinations and a flight test with an approved pilot examiner.

Hopefully, the guide above will answer your question on how to become a pilot.

      Just go to any flying academy in malaysia….but you must pay a lot of money to get the license. If you want to be a pilot i recomment you…take CPL(Comercial Pilot License)…

    i was a student of an approved aircraft maintenance organisation,but at the same time i love to pilot job because this is my dream since i was 7. from your opinion,should i go straight to my studying now without diploma to this pilot course or wait till i got the diploma in aircraft maintenance then apply to this pilot course?

    Reply
    1. Zul

      Both are sensible option, but if your mind is already set on being a pilot, why wait?

      Nevertheless, weigh your options well. Perhaps the aircraft maintenance course may speed up your learning process.

      I think it’s also good if you get an advice directly from the flying school of your choice.

    hello,,after i’ve read at the star about the first waman pilot in malaysia makes me more interestd in doing piloting.but im not sure how to apply for flying school…do i have to apply after spm results or before?i thought of dropping biology paper for my spm because i think in doing piloting biology subject didnt required..am i right?..is is a correct decision or i should continue studying it?please let me know ASAP

    Reply
    1. Tony

      Dear Mazliatun,
      Before your’re really get into pilot school. You shall not drop any subjects that in your SPM that you’ve taken. This is because you are not really get into the school yet. Before the SPM, you should be concentrate to all subjects that you have taken until you have finish it.
      Yet, you also need a few biology knowledge in piloting, like what is the condition to our body after the take off of airplane, esp: the ears. This shall be about the change of air act on our body right?
      Thus, piloting need a large field of knowledge, not only physics and mathematics, but also geography, meteorology, biology, communication and so on.
      Besides, you need your after SPM result to apply for cadet pilot in local airlines company. This is one of the way get into aviation field.
      thank you.

    Dear Sir,

    I am currently facing SPM examination this year, i am very interested to involve myself in this pilot career. Same like others, my dreams ever since childhood. here i would like to ask is that if i apply for :

    MAS Cadet Pilot

    Successful candidate will undergo a comprehensive training programme for approximately twenty six (26) months. Trainees will be required to obtain the Commercial Pilot Licence / Instrument Rating (CPL/IR) with Frozen Airline Transport Licence (ATPL) prior to being established as cadet pilot.

    OR

    Singapore Airlines Cadet Pilot

    Successful candidates will spend 15 to 17 months on training to acquire an Airline Transport Pilot’s License (ATPL) with Instrument Rating (IR) at Pilot Training Schools in Singapore and overseas.

    Main point is, will they sponsored scholarships to me as in to obtain PPL, CPL & ATPL that is required to be a Airline Pilot? or I have to apply to take the license myself where i will be paying all those cost and fees that is required? As for me, I searching for scholarship all over the net but i didn’t found any yet, and with my financial background RM200,000+ is quite a big amount where my family is unable to afford.

    Hope to get a reply answer soon.Thanks.

      If you are really wanna be pilot, it is better to join Singapore airlines. The pay is higher.
      ok now back to yr question, U will not need to go and take any pilot courses or license in other flying schools. Just apply and see whether they accept u , if they do accept u,just go, the airlines company will pay 4 all the expanses, then u will complete all the license and courses.

      wishing u happy SPM
      pls notify me if u benn taken as a cadet pilot at mac-pac@hotmail.com

      As you can know. in Malaysia there are many flying academy that you can go. you can enter the academy but you should have the suitable critirea to be as a pilot. And Im also proud of you because you can got 7A in PMR. And i also hope that you can improve in SPM next year. If you get the best result in SPM comfirm that any academy will find you not you to find this academy. and one more if you want to be as a pilot the physic or any saince subject you should get A. About your english language just same with me. Im also not well to speak in english but just speak in your family regularly, if you vanatic with english song try to find the meaning of the song and always read the english book. I hope you can be as a professional pilot one day..GOOD LUCK!!!
