You will not start out flying a Emb, or any jet for that matter.
You will typically start flying in a C-172 or similar small single engine airplane, and obtain your private, then insturment, a commerical cert in a complex aircraft, then a multi-engine add-on, then CFI to build hours to be employable. Start by being very nice to your parents, as they will have to co-sign for the student loans to finance everything, as it costs alot, upwards of 80,000.00.
I would recommend starting by taking a discovery flight at your local airport. You do not need a degree in aviation to be a pilot, any bachelors degree will work. (You actually do not need a degree, but the it will increase your chances of being hired)
- If you want to be an airline pilot you should go to a university with an aviation program and make sure it is an FAA part 141 school. Airlines like the 141 schools because they know what type of training you received and that passed above the FAA min requirements. You can do part 61 and save some money but the airlines don't know what type of training you received, even if you had an excellent instructor that made sure you knew everything. I have heard plenty of stories from actual airline pilots that went through a part 141 program that they got hired over the part 61 pilot who had more hours than they did.
- I would also recommend getting a CFI (Flight Instructor License), the airlines like this because it shows you thorough knowledge of Aviation. Also the Airline industry is wild you could be working one and then be furloughed for a long time, having a CFI allows you to go back to instructing while you look for work.
Fly in entry level jobs until you can get on with a charter company or some kind of airline.
When you are able to get on with an airline with 145s, that airline will train you to fly it.
To increase your chances of getting hired:
Have a clean flying record, good employment history, experience flying an airline schedule, be well informed, and well spoken.
you don't need a degree to be a pilot. 2 a-levels preferably in maths and physics but it don't matter. most airlines use to sponsor you for flying training if you had 2 a-levels and a first class medical, but sadly they have stopped this now due to the economy. you can join the raf or Navy as a pilot with 2 a-levels as well. or you can pay 66,000 for a cpl commercial pilot licence at a flying school the best ones are oxford aviation and ctc wings. visit www.ctcwings.com
