Is there an aircraft pilot in the house?

I need to setup an interview for my sop****re research paper, and the whole paper is going to be based on becoming an aircraft pilot. I am going to be gone for a few days to visit relatives, so when I come back I will be checking here. I only need to ask around 10 questions. I am going to be spending most of christmas break doing this stupid paper. Thanks.

My Bro-in-law is a fixed wing pilot and a rotor pilot (helicopter), I'm sure he wouldn't mind be asked a couple of ????'s

PM me if interested and I'll give you his e-mail!

Go ahead and PM me, Klein. I've been instructing on light aircraft for 20+ years. Of course I can only offer you the Canadian perspective.

If it needs to be a commercial pilot you could try www.pprune.org

Its full of professional aviation types. The downside is that there are also people that have been no closer to a cockpit than MS Flight Simulator butpretend to be pilots on it.

I'm a commercial pilot/multi-engine with some floatplane and rotor time.

Flying is something that I'vealways wanted to do, ever since I can remember.

My wife has claimed for the last 35 years that I am a "F@#&ing Space Cadet".

I don't know if any of my wisdom can help, but I am willing to tell you anything you want to hear.

Did you go to college at all? I need to type up a resume (projected 4-6 years after I supposedly graduate college) Could you maybe tell me some classes you took or some jobs you had and what you did at them? I really dont know what to put in this resume.

I do have some college, yes. I don't fly for a living, I never did but I do alot of instructing to help defer the cost of building hours. I also know some guys who worked their way from private to some commercial flying, I can probably help by giving their stories.
