Becoming a Pilot

Most countries have their own rules about who can become a pilot. In the majority of cases the candidate will have to hold a foreign going Masters licence and in this case, the best approach is to contact shipping companies who run large fleets. Precise prerequisites can vary from country to country. Many countries also insist that pilots should be a national of the country concerned although this not so everywhere. Be sure to make enquiries of the National authorities/Port you are interested in which you are considering becoming a pilot.
