Do Airlines Pay For Schooling

Can I Go To American Airlines Flight Attendant School While I m 19 As Long As I Graduate When I m 20?

Yes, but only after you have been hired.

Can an airline pay for a person's flight school until he acquires an ATPL, a total flying time of 1500, and they later remove it gradually from the person's salary when he his employed with them? If yes, how will I link to that airline?

I have certainly never heard of such a plan. That being said - other countries have other value systems. I do strongly doubt any “capitalist” style airline would do such a thing as there are no shortages of folks paying for their own training.You may find a country with a national airline with an entirely different philosophy - they might do such a thing but its is not probable you could get into the plan - such would almost always be reserved for citizens.The best way to be paid ( and the best training available ) is to get into the military and have them teach you. Everyone who joins the airforce wants to be a fighter pilot - so if you say “multi-engine, please” they will be thrilled. Most recruits think multi-engine training is punishment for not being quite good enough. You might even like flying for the military. I’d take it in a heartbeat if offered…

Will the GI Bill pay for flight school/training?

When I get out of the coast guard in however many years, will the GI Bill pay for me to attend flight school and get certified for commercial airlines? It's always been my dream to become a pilot, I'm living as a flight mechanic now. Just trying to figure out what my options are when I decide to get out.

How do airline pilots manage to pay for their expensive flight school before being a pilot?

Different strokes for different folks. Some are born with golden spoon and have no issues getting money from their parents. Others like myself worked 5 years non stop before I could save enough to pay for flying school ($30k in 1992). Some take loan from family or banks and a lot get defeated because of this high upfront cost.Getting the money is only half the battle. Getting your first job as a pilot is a bigger battle and literally no one wants to hire you because of your inexperience(high insurance cost).Somehow you do spend few years of your life flying for free or minimum wages logging 1500 hrs you can get into the majors……….not so fast. Depending on the economic cycles maybe no one is hiring or everyone is hiring. Airlines that pay the best always have more supply than demand so most likely one ends up settling with LCC or a B airline or move overseas… I guess a lot will depend on your individual journey.some guys get lucky from get go and some guys struggle all their lives and then again some give up and switch to other careers.there are few airlines (Singapore, etihad, air Asia, Cathay etc) in Asia and Middle East that will pay for your flying in exchange for 5 years of service. This is probably the safest way as they have invested in you so will ensure they get their return on investment.Good Luck.

How to become a Flight Attendant and do I need any schooling?

DO NOT GO TO ANY SCHOOL FOR THIS!!!!! Each company has their own training. They will train you on EVERYTHING you need to know. DO NOT waste money or time. DONT. Ive already answered this question.. here it is....

I became a F/A at 20. You do not need a college degree and you need to be legal to serve alcohol.. yup.. thats all you need, at least for national flights. I did not fly international, but i imagine is the same thing. Many airlines have stopped hiring for theire inflight positions except for pilots... due to the economy being so bad.

Training is usually like 4 weeks or so, It is not pad, but they will give you an incentive upon completion of training. You need to be very careful in training, they check everything. They check from your shoes, to how ur hair is done..EVERYDAY, for you girls, they tell u to reapply make up... reapply reapply. they will have some Lancome or any other companies reps to give you a makeover and show you what make up is best for you and stuff.. (kinda kool). And this is how it works.::
I used to fly either 4 days 3 off... or 3days.4off. it just depends. It all goes by senority, and when you start, you are on reserve. It sucks at first but then it gets better. all airlines have their different ways of bidding for schedules. You get to bid where you would like to fly/what days and with who, one month prior. It all depends on how sr u are.. but unever know... u might get what you want.
This airline had AM reserve-you were on call from like 3am-4pm or something.. i 4got. then PM reserve..on call from like 12pm-8pm. During this reserve hours you could get a trip assigned, r you could get Airport Standby (you get to sit for about 5 hours at the airport's flight attendants lounge) and wait... just in case some one calls in sick, or anything out of the ordinary happens. They keep you there to cover for other F/As.
Anyways, when you get to your destination, you walk with your Crew outside and there should be a hotel van or shuttle waiting for you (usually u and other airlines crews) and they will take you to your hotel. It is all paid for by the airline...except of course if you order meals, or movies or anything like that, then you pay for that.. remember most ailines pay u a PER DIEM while your away from your base.
Good Luck.

Which airline companies pay for a student flight training and later cuts it by make you flying their aircraft?

It depends on the country.In the USA, airlines don’t pay for flight training. They have enough applicants who paid for their own training. That said, there are always worries that regulations squeezing the General Aviation industry can seriously dent this supply, since most applicants get their hours by working as flight instructors for amateurs, so reducing that market could affect the supply of pilots.In other countries, some airlines (e.g. the big European carriers like British Airways) prefer to train their own pilots from scratch. In that situation, it’s like an apprenticeship. If you wash out, or leave the airline early, they will bill you for the lost training costs that they didn’t get to recover from your work. In many cases they will want a good chunk of the training fee on deposit anway, and you get it back gradually while working after you qualify.Really, that’s pretty fair. Why should they risk their money until you prove they will get it back?

How do airlines pay for the hotel when pilots stay overnight?

Typically, at least for our operations, our dispatch books each pilot a hotel room for the night. The usually have in the pilot contracts the types of hotels that the company is required to provide, such as at least a 3 star..
Usually, judging by all the pens, post it notes, etc that end up in the office, typcially they are Mariotts, Ramada, Sleep Inn, Quality Choice type hotels. When flying to certian locations, we have established a good relatioship with some of the hotels, so they offer company discounts to keep us coming back, especially in high traffic areas such as El paso, laredo, kansas city..Some times though, its whereever you can find a room, when certian events happen..

Do airliners generally look back at high school grades or does it rely on the current license you hold & the experience you have?

Potential employers in general want to know two things about your work history:Do you have the skills required for this job, andAre you a hard-working & self-motivated individual?High school grades are relevant only for those applicants who have no relevant work history. Sure, you worked at McDonalds, but have you any academic ability? Only high school grades will tell the airline that information if you have no commercial piloting experience.However, by the time you have enough experience to actually apply for an airline job, you will probably also have some piloting experience to help the airline answer the two questions above. High school grades will become less relevant as you gain more and more piloting experience.Airlines will probably always want to check that you did graduate from high school, however. It’s an important box to tick on their Human Resources employment form.
