When I decided I wanted to fly for a living, I had no idea what I needed to do. I knew there was a flight school out there called Embry-Riddle that supposedly trained pilots. So, after applying and getting accepted, I traveled down to Daytona Beach to get my wings.
I figured, a few more years of college and I would have my flying job. Little did I know…that is simply not the way it works. There’s a lot more you need before landing that dream job of airline pilot, corporate pilot, or some other pilot job flying those beautiful twin jets.

No, there are no exams, but it’s recommended that you get your medical certificate first. That way, you don’t spend a lot of money and then find out that you don’t qualify for a medical.
