Being an airline pilot is a glamorous, exciting, and highly rewarding job. But how exactly do you become one? You can't just submit a resume and expect someone to call you back with a job offer. The actual process takes a long time and much dedication; it also means meeting precise requirements and can be a fairly expensive pathway to getting a career.

How does an aircraft fly?
When the plane flies horizontally, lift from the wings exactly balances the plane's weight. But the other two forces do not balance: the thrust from the engines pushing forward always exceeds the drag (air resistance) pulling the plane back. That's why the plane moves through the air.........hehe boring right or if you have flying experience like me u just do your pre check look around the aircraft to make sure nothing is wrong then you get into the aircraft check everything star the engine taxi then take off there you are flying.

What challenges/ threat do you face when flying a plane?
Yeah just be confident and don't be too relaxed

What advice can you give to newcomers aspiring to be pilots?
Just know the life of a pilot is amazing lol this is for guys the ladies will be all over you and ladies guys will be scared to approach you they be like ooh sh** she is a pilot but you must work hard and your parents should be ready to invest a lot in the training
Is there a specific person or company that has been an influence

What do you think the govt should do to support young upcoming pilots like you ?
Kudos to them for sponsoring students but they need to create more job opportunities they should bring back Nigeria airways, Like Emirates makes billions of dollars Nigeria should also follow their example since millions of Nigerians travel yearly.
