The pilot profession is one of the most fascinating professions that exist. To have the knowledge, the ability as well as the responsibility of an aircraft; to have the passengers trust you with their lives is what attract me the most in this profession. I never thought of becoming a pilot until I started working at Rhodes International Airport four years ago as an airline representative. This world was new and very stimulating. From that moment on I began an extensive research on everything involving airplanes: started reading articles, journals and forums on the internet.
I was fortunate enough to get first hand information from pilots about the kind of licenses and courses I needed to achieve and the most difficult part how to begin in order to become a pilot one day. Due to my experience I have had the chance to liaise with numerous pilots and form an opinion about what the characteristic of a good pilot must be. Pilots have to be responsible as they are in charge of the aircraft they are flying and of the souls in it. They must be in control at all times because of the adverse circumstances that they might occur during a flight.
What makes me a suitable candidate for the Pilot program is the fact that I am ready to learn new things about the profession that I love. I am hard working, determined, dedicated and have proven myself in working under stressful circumstances. I am an effective communicator and because of my work as an airline representative and as a computer engineer, I can work effectively in a team while taking decisions in order to produce the desired result. I do have what it takes and I am ready to learn. All I need is the opportunity to prove that I have the qualifications and the motivation to study about the profession that I want to follow in my life.
