There are several things to do to become a successful and well-pain pilot in Nigeria. For one, you need to find a flight school and not just any kind of them. The school should be approved by the FAA (Federal Aviation Association). Secondly, you need to get a fair number of hours in the air (the flight time). According to the stats the pilots with over 4000 hours of flight experience in their log are the ones that get hired by the best airlines and receive high level of pay. So, what you need to look for is a program with both theory and flight first-hand experience training.

Nah, but i am a professional Virtual Pilot. I have had the dream of becoming a pilot ever since i was a kid. Nigeria is a country where i am aware of kids change their dreams as they grown, all due to the reason of economic woes and lack of support.
Since i still couldn't find a way of fulfilling this dream, i have to get satisfaction by joining a virtual flying community, and that is where i get fulfillment from pending the time i can gather enough to get the real flying license.
To those who wants to satisfy their lust for flying at all cost, and can not afford the fee, just get yourself a flying simulation software, a joystick and join an online flying community, you will be the happiest person on earth.
i am back on this post again, pls @ rdv pls don't leave us alone on this, i have no idea not even a clue about my career but flying is really my dream, this isn't something i just woke up on a fateful day and just decide to do, i dream about this often when i was very young.pls i have a financial challenges and i want an info on how to do about my career. i am trying to go to nda, i have cllected the form and filled it already but the problem is that you will have to be connected to get into the school, i thought this would be a better foundation on my flying career but connection is the big problem now, pls how can you help me pls i need you to post something to me too as you have done for others and all nairalanders, pls
Hello Coriola, I am very interested in the Ilorin school. I just got back from South Africa with my PPL and trying to raise money for the CPL but am struggling with that. Can you help me with the Ilorin sch. My yahoo id is firstname.lastname@example.org. you can holla me with more info of how to get in with their scholarship scheme also. Thank you
I have tried all the airlines but to no avail.
The basic entry requirements for NCAT and most flying schools is ur O' levels including Math, Physics and English (geography is and added advantage) , the in house Aptitude Test/ oral Assessment and a valid class A medical which in NCAT's case is part of the medical test . Having a B.Sc in the Sciences if anything should be an academic advantage but really isn't the priority of the examiners.
I must tell u that entry into NCAT is competitive both academics and contact wise, we had about 1500 or more people writing the test and only 40 got picked which was b'cos the sch had not admitted flying students in a while, the standard class is 20-24 per class. and weeding is continuous (i.e if u don't meet up at any point in the training u go home). I personally had a B.Sc in computer Science and ended up in a class of 33 with only 7 graduates and only 23 (3 Graduates) are left in class 1.8yrs down the line (excluding me).
Yes Training in Zaria takes a little longer than 18 months for PPL/CPL/IR/ME due weather availability of AVGAS and other factors but that is gradually changing with the new administration and recent acquisition of new training Aircrafts and i also believe it's a cheaper alternative. yes 7.5 million is a lot of cash but when u consider the fact that u get feeding , accommodation, course materials et all and about 300hrs flight time 50hrs of which should be ME on the Beach Baron (if u'r sharp enough) i think it's a good bargain. Plus u could pay in bits and source for sponsors while continuing ur training (i.e of course with the consent of the rector and the Head of sch)
Forms are sold once a year at NCAT and other Aviation parastatals such as NCAA/NAMA offices. It's been a while so no concrete info but i do know that there are currently about 3 courses on ground SP-24A should be rounding up in Oct-Nov, that leaves SP-25 and then the Airforce PPL class. SP-26 is not operational yet, they sold forms and wrote the entrance exam (i'm not sure if they've done the interview) but it would be a while b4 they start flying so u have to be patient if u'r thinking of NCAT except u have long legs and 7.5m handy. Or u could just apply for the PPL course at 2.5m (still alot right?)
Let keep our fingers crossed and see what ilorin has to offer ( there's a new flying school kicking off there, i think the lagos liaison office is at 170 awolowo road Ikoyi)
I Have to go now, hope this has been helpful
It is good and interesting to find such a thread.
Am seriously interested in being a pilot but the finance is the seeming obstacle.
I recently came across a flying school in Philippines through their agent here in Nigeria. 2 days ago to be precise. The guy told me of the school when I went to his office, their offer of admission and price. The price is about USD35,863.00 it is to be paid in 3 installments.
20% that is USD 7,172.60 for enrollment and Visa after getting the admission.
30% that is USD 10,758.90 upon arrival at the school
50% that is USD 17,931.75 in the 5th month of the training. The training is for 9months.
This fees covers, accommodation, materials and uniform with the exception of feeding.
The form is free of charge.
Please can anyone help me with how to get funding, scholarship or even loan?
Or how to hook up with an airline company that can sponsor and we will enter into contract for me to work for them?
Thanks. 08036017839. email@example.com
The Cheapest Place to Learn Pilot Training is in the Philippines. There is one Aviation Company "WCC Aviation Company Inc, they even have their own Private Airfield where you will learn how to fly. They have their appointed Representative here in Nigeria "Amtec Links International" they are located in Kano.
The Cost of Training including Accommodation is around $36,000 (including all exams, books, and licenses up to CPL, Accommodation, Uniforms, etc.) You will only need to pay for your Air Ticket, and Food. The duration is between 8 to 10 months.
The School's website is: http://www.wccaviation.com
Their Representative's website is: http://www.amteclinks.com
Wow! Am really impressed by what have come across on this thread,
I have always had a serious flair for flying, but as we all know what nigeria can do to one's dreams and aspirations,
Anyway, here I am, a student in my 300level studying surveying and geoinformatics engineering at the university of lagos, but my passion for flying and aviation generally has seized to wane,
So am wondering if anybody can be kind enough so as to direct me in the right path, I intend to complete my degree first or probably combine them if it is feasible, but I really really want to work as a commercial pilot,
I am so so in love with aviation,thanks in advance.
Well I spoke to the chief flying instructor at my school and the seem to want more nigerian students it's in Zambia very decent facility close to south africa and you can fly in during your cross country training. The fees are PPL $10,000 and CPL with multi-engine and instrument rating $33,000 accomodation included holla at me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you pay on arrival and the visa is a breeze.

What i want to know is what approach is better the modular program or the one off ATPL training that most schools offer thanks and wherre is Ivy self.
I have seen nothing like this before.I must say am very happy particularly on this forum of FORUM.This is my first post on nairaland.Nothing has ever inspired me to writing until now.I appreciate everyone on this.I have been living with this dream from my childhood till now. As one of you rightly said,it's rekindling my love once again for this noble profession.This is to let y'all know that people are watching!
@Wham, abi? i realy think it's a good thing,
@Ivy, nah, i saw your post the night before naw, not to mention that i've never submitted any such application forms, and have no idea how to go about it, when you say train you to be one of their pilots, do you mean without even prior experience?? anywho, be kind enough to update those of us who have no clue about these things whenever you hear about them!
Interesting to see females like me who wants to fly.
An advice for you, if that's ur dream, keep it alive i would say and be proud to do that too.
As for the physics aspect, it is there, i doubt if you can excape it. Everthing has to do with determination and i trust if you really are, you would fly.
We are sisters tribally, and i wish you luck. Would be glad if you will join me fly.
Go girl, make us proud.
