For questions about becoming, or working as, an aviation professional: pilot, controller, mechanic etc.

Use this tag for questions about how to become employed as an aviation professional. This includes subjects like:

  • How to pay for training, e.g. training grants
  • Qualifications, e.g. whether a degree is required or not
  • Employment regulations and practices, e.g. seniority, rest hours, crew travel perks

There's a large potential overlap with other aviation topics like flight training and also with non-aviation topics like education or employment law. So please keep your questions focused on things that are unique to working as an aviation professional.

Questions about the training and tests required for a commercial pilot's license should usually be tagged as well.
