Hi,

I am new and my plan is to take my Private, Commercial, IRF and Multi-Engine licenses this year. I am from Canada and would travel to Florida to take my classes and it would take about 7 months.

So basicly I want to know if it is a good start to gain those licenses, once I am done with the courses, where should I start working to build enough hours to get better jobs? I would really like to work for Air Canada when I get the experience required, my dream is basicly being an airline pilot who does very long international flights :)

What kind of experience do I need and how do I get it?

Thanks,
Kevin

Dude, don't Canadian airlines require you to complete your licenses in Canada?
