What type of flight hours (muliti) (turbine) (tt) do you really need to get a job with a "good" airline?
Do you recommend a first officer program like Gulfstream training acadamey? or is cfi cfii hours acceptable?
What are pros/cons of being a pilot?
Do pilots get divorced alot?
dont tell him he doesnt want it you dont even know him
i'm an aspiring pilot and i know its going to be a lot of hard work and dedication, but its worth it if this is something you want to do because you love flying - not just for the money.
if you want to know the required flight hours for "good" airlines (i suppose you mean major airlines) check out their websites, ie. air canada, southwest, american airlines, at the bottom of most of their pages they will have a button that says CAREERS - click on it and read away!
By the time you qualify to be interviewed at what you are calling "a 'good' airline" you will have years of check pilot or check airman experience. You will have several aircraft ratings. You will have at least a year and 1000 hours of large jet captain experience. You might well be rated in some aircraft that the airline operates.
Getting to that level will involve flying all kinds of planes for very low pay.
In the US there is enough hiring of low-time-pilots that going the Gulfstream route is not necessary. Gulfstream has a fine program, but with a respectable amount of CFI-A or CFI-I time you can get on with any of many commuter air carriers.
Pilots get divorced a lot. Wives find themselves left at home for weeks on end; if you're not ok with sharing don't become an airline pilot . Pilots are furloughed for years on end; be ready with other ways of keeping money coming in.
You don't want to become a pilot. You have way to many doubts. Gotta want it man. Jeez.
