Please my name is Daniel im 14 and becoming a pilot has been a dream of mine since i was 4 so when i entered secondary school i download some flight simulators(xplane and infinite flight) so know i can startup a 737 and a cessna 172 so when i entered grade 10 my dad told me that he doesnt want me to be a pilot and this is my childhood dream so i got bad vibes about becoming a pilot so i told myself that i would study mechatronic engineering in university then get enough money to pay for my flight school then when i retire as a pilot continue my job as a mechatronic engineer so recently ive been watching air crash investigation to improve my pilot knowledge and when i newly found mentor pilot you istantley became my role model because your so cool because naturally i thought pilots were boring people one day i hope to fly with you thats if your still a pilot by then 🤷‍♂️

WOW !!! . I always wanted to be an airline pilot especially on the 737 but only got as far as my P.P.L and only flew a couple of times after that then the cost of things mainly fuel and landing fees got out of hand , haven't flown for 7 years now and I certainly don't have any property to base a loan on or do I have 100,000 Euro's in the bank . I cant wait to find out more about this . Keep up the good work Blue skies and happy landings .

Wel, good thoughts but its not that simple. I followed flight training, funded by the bank based on the expectation that I would become a pilot and would be able to pay the loan back to the bank. Unfortunately 2010 came arrount and no pilot were needed. Funding dried up and ofcourse the means to stay current. Now 9 years later I stil have own the bank a lot of money. All the pilots in that same period I studied with who had hopes and goals are now struggeling to make a living. We all joint in a law suit against the bank based on the fact that the bank funded us without any financial backing or future security, breaking their obligation to protect customers agains overcrediting. How this will turn out I dont know but sometimes I wish i failed the test making me become a pilot.
Marko Jerinic (2 months ago)
That's a great idea that i like from you mentor! Maybe for the people who should not forget something as well here: when the students get those bank loans, what will happen after that? Because everyone is out for themselves in this world and banks can charge you in interests or something else that will hurt the student pilot in a significant financial way. Just something to be aware of. But with any sort of movement like this at the beginning, those kinds of details can be later firmly and structurally established for sure. Thank you mentor for being a role model and a door for the aviation industry!

Perhaps we have reached the end of a modern “peace dividend”. if so, it would not be the first time. I was a student pilot in the 70’s. There was NO room for me. There were (1) old veterans (2) Vietnam veterans or (3) emery riddle students who paid a high tuition. In the 70’s nobody even wanted to talk to a boot-strap student pilot from anywhere - in my case Midway Airport in Chicago. We were lucky just to get to transport some rich guys junk from one corn field to another. We were not treated with any respect alike MP asks for now. Shame on Boeing.

What would also be good is to create an association where pilots would be able to put their money and create pilot funding for people who are not pilots yet. Pilots won't give their money. They will loan it. I think banks are not interested in it, and won't be even if they see there's interest.

Chris A (2 months ago)
Unfortunately the market for this financing is likely too small for banks to programatically invest in such careers. I don't think it is anywhere near what it is for say student loans. However, if such a market really does exist, then the flight schools need to provide the financing which would then be backed by government support (like student loans) and then the "paper" would be purchased or financed by the banks. So like colleges, the flight schools need to provide this financing directly, also not unlike getting an auto loan. I just don't see the market for a new pilot being anywhere near the market for a new car. Maybe I'm wrong. If a viable market exists, some entity would support the financing. How different is this really from a trade school providing financing?
Chris A (2 months ago)
You know, just like GMAC (General Motors acceptance corp) and GE and Ford provide financing for their products, maybe Boeing and Airbus should be providing the financing for pilot training? Doesn't that seem logical? Or maybe even Udvar-Hazy (ILFC) should get into this business, since they finance the jets. Honestly, a meeting with those types of firms would give you a quick tutorial on where the challenges will be with your strategy. God knows Boeing could sure use the boost to public image with such a program.
Chris A (2 months ago)
@Mentour Pilot Mentour, clearly knowing the market for this is crucial, which it appears you understand well. I don't know how accurate this is, but googling it, it appears there are 44.7 million student loans borrowers borrowing $105.5BB each year. That is a staggering figure, which explains why the market for student debt is thriving, in addition to the obvious fact the social system is encouraged to sponsor education. I didn't google Auto debt, but that figure is likely even more staggering. At numbers you propose, that equates to $800MM of debt (sorry can't find the euro symbol) which is not insignificant but less than 1/100th of annual student loans, assuming 10,000 new pilots need financing annually. It does seem more plausible that so long as there is good certainty of employment that the likelihood of repayment could be greater than the current issue plaguing borrowers of student loans (default rate is increasing). But we could get into a long financial and social discussion here that would take more space than this page has. But the basic premise being that one "must" work at some point in life, at any job potentially, thus there is always an opportunity to repay a student loan. If someone fails to succeed as a pilot or simply is not employed ever as a pilot, does that loan go into default or is it repaid in a similar fashion? I don't know much about trade schools, but somehow i feel this kind of financing should be made available, but it should fall under the guise of financing available for people who are seeking technical college training (welders, nurses, xray technicians, etc). Somebody somewhere knows more about this type of financing availability and the pros and cons associated with it, and thus may be able to give you more detail about the pitfalls. I am involved in finance but am not an expert in this specific area. I commend you for your passion and support your cause.
Mentour Pilot (2 months ago)
Hi! The difference lies in the structure of the ENTIRE program. Similar things exist but only aimed at specific airlines, not at the industry as a whole. It might not look like much of a business for the banks at the onset but given that there is a need for several tens of thousands of pilots globally during the coming 10 years, and each of them need financing to the tune of 80 000€ each, it becomes big numbers.

How do you switch to ground power after turning off APU in 737?
Jeff Dunn (2 months ago)
Mentour pilot, I figured it out. I selected the ground power switch to on “ before” I turned off the batt. Thanks for your advice!
Jeff Dunn (2 months ago)
Mentour Pilot when i shut off APU, ground power was previously on and when i shut APU down the main cabin lights go out. I still have the blue light on indicating ground power is available, but no joy on the main cabin lights. Do i have to do any kind of reset where plane is plugged in? Also, im a ramper at airline. Could u do video on this? I love your videos and am a subscriber!
Mentour Pilot (2 months ago)
You just manually select the Ground power, that will deselect the APU

Captain Mentour Pilot be warned as I knew a trainee Airline Pilot (I was his House Prefect at Boarding School) who ran up debts of £76000 back in the 1990's and later he committed suicide due to his debts in the attic room he was renting. He was totally dedicated to obtaining his CPL/IR when I did my Group B Multi Licence at Hurn Airport and Old Sarum which I did simply for recreation. Only borrow what you can pay back !

How much is it to be a airline pilot
Matt Ryan (2 months ago)
This is so refreshing. I have been working every hour under the sun to make as much money as I can to get some hours in. I'm struggling to make any real progress despite being laser focused on where I need to end up. I have the will, the determination, the passion, and as much study knowledge as I have been able to get my hands on. I'm so ready, but finance holds me back. This is why this idea is so amazing, someone finally recognising that the best pilots are the ones who have had to work the hardest to get there and they just need a little leg up. Can't wait to hear more As an idea: you should crowd source resources for the company. Aspiring pilots are often talented in their own field. Business development, marketing, project management skills all could be donated to the cause for perhaps flight time in return. I would be happy to donate my time to assist with the plan in return for flight time, and when I qualify and gain a role within the industry, there will always be someone to step in and donate time and skills

dannydaw59 (2 months ago)
It's a risk investing in someone who might look like they have great potential but then might not pass flight school. Then regional airlines don't pay much in the US so the return on investment will be a while. What needs to happen is take the regional airline's leverage away by unionizing and make them pay what the new pilots are actually worth.

Jim McKnight (2 months ago)
Unfortunately Peter, the banks know people want money. The problem is insuring the debt gets paid back. Hence why the banks want collateral. If you proposed what you said in the video with the added bonus of a contract with the airline, the bank will see that they will get their money back. No bank will offer money to someone based on the fact they are capable of doing something.

That is something I need! I am a student pilot from India! I have cleared all exams in Air Navigation, Aviation Meteorology, Air Regulations, Technical General and Indian RTR(A) licence and FRTOL licence in first attempt. I need only my 200 hours to get completed to get my CPL. But I am already out of money :( The flying school I was in, in India made me pay entire amount and now they don't give me flying! At all! That school turned out to be fraud. My money is stuck there. I am looking for an education loan but its not really easy to get it as the banks are not really good here as in the employees...not helpful at all. But trying my best to do whatever I can. I will become a Pilot. NOT GOING TO GIVE UP SO EASY! I subscribed! Thank you so much for this!

I live in the USA and there were loans that were government subsidized such as Sallie Mae, now these loan companies have become privatized. It makes it nearly impossible to get into the aviation industry without either starting capital or creditworthiness. I’m not sure how the loan process works in Sverige but here in the USA the prospective CADET is at the mercy of these private loan institutions. I do know for a fact that flight training is charged at market rates and we have many aspiring aviators therefore flight training is quite expensive. I do realize that flying a GA is expensive and over regulated which causes many Europeans to come here on holiday to complete their currency requirements. In conclusion I hope this movement you are starting WILL address the impending pilot shortage.
alessio272 (2 months ago)
Mentour Pilot I rented a Beechcraft Baron for $400/ hour. Just to get multi time and it was the cheapest in my area. Most aviation companies want you to pull out of your pocket to pay for what they require. That’s how it is in wonderful America!!

Yes, that’s what we are trying to address. The rates will probably still be high but at least we should get you guys access to the loans.

@haqvor lol. YOu really believe the market for air travel might diminish because of some crazy proto communists ranting about man made global warming? Air travel is going to continue to increase by huge margins. Nothing can stop that. You can't take a few crazy people seriously. People like that have been around forever. I remember the 70s, when those people said that by the 1990s, there would be no food, no oil, and the world was going to be thrown back to the dark ages. This marxism posing as "concern of the environment" has a long, pathetic history.
haqvor (2 months ago)
Funders get a new market for lending money with minimized risk. As the people are first screened to be a good fit as future pilots they will also be capable to repay the loans with interest. The students also has a minimized risk of being stuck with loans to a career that is closed for them. Last the airlines get better qualified applicants that they can more or less guarantee a job before the education is started. As I see it this have the potential to make everyone happy in the end. The main risk with this is if the market for new pilots diminish radically. Which with the current climate crisis is a very real possibility. Flying has been painted as a large contributor to green house gas emissions, mainly because it is very visible. In reality there are much bigger contributors such as energy production, manufacturing of products like steel, cement, oil based products and clothes.

Mentour Pilot, surely a large cost of training is due to fuel costs, right? Should aircraft engine manufacturers look and rethink how they're making their engines? I've read about a car engine that was modified for an aeroplane, and that engine had a 4-6 fuel consumption rate. Not only will I become a pilot, but I'll also become an engineer in aerospace and design some more fuel-efficient engines for training aircraft. Maybe have them run on something cheaper or use renewable energy too! Edit: I've shared this w/ friends and family, but I dunno how many will sign up. Would it be possible to take this to airlines and flight schools and see if they'll have people sign up? (I've signed.)

A slightly off question but nonetheless, why is it that (at least in the Netherlands) every form of higher professional education is subsidised by the government. But the aviation industry? To become a truck driver or a train driver is almost fully funded somehow, but a pilot? Has it to do with European countries competing? Also Brexit perhaps?

Sorry dude, there will be no pilots in 20-years. The size of an air power will be measured by the size and number of their drones. There are just too many wedding parties that need to be annihilated in cold blood; too many rights of privacy to be violated; too many personal liberties to be taken away. Those that want to be pilots will be viewed like legal gun owners, a threat, only one emotional moment away from being a "mass" crasher. No government, no corporate oligarch is going to trust another "hu-man" to get them from point "A" to point "B" much less bomb a target. Pilots have priced themselves out of the business. It just costs too damn much to train you.

I thought it was relatively common in aviation that airlines offer a loan that you do not have to pay back if you fail. And offer a guaranteed job if you succeed. The loan is 125000 euro's and the airline stands accountable for it towards the bank. I know KLM and transavia do this often.

Unfortunately no one is giving the money for just like that. Especially banks. Bankers are the most greedy creatures on earth. They will take your last. That is how they work.

I always felt that I lost any chance to become a pilot and now I'm 30 years old already - is that a problem? I mean. I graduated from law university and I have some career progress in front of me but number 1 job was and will be a pilot. But I have few important questions. You need some your money to be able get into that flight school but can yo do it while you are working from Monday to Friday? Can you attend that school (fly) during weekends or after the work? I have read you need at least 1500 flight hours to be able become a airline pilot and that it takes usually 2 years to get these hours. Being 2 years without a job will be big problem for me. Thats why I'm asking. Thanks.

C2K (2 months ago)
Sorry to be the one to say this but either you have massively over simplified your aims in this video or you are missing some MAJOR points. 1. REALITY - Banks lend according to risk, which is gauged via a credit scoring system which shows potential / ability for repayment. They are not credit unions( who would never have access to the sums needed and would never lend for such things anyway). "Talent" isn't something any financial institution can leverage against or, more importantly for them, recover/ take possession of if payments aren't made. 2. The LAW - In most countries where lending is approved via the above method it is done so because it is deemed a fair and equitable system. It would break several laws of those countries, namely equality laws for starters for them to lend outside of that method as they would be showing bias to X group/ category/ organisation. 3. Signing up for a newsletter doesn't show the banks anything apart from make a business case for yourself( and those you're in business with) to demonstrate there is a market for your idea. Showing a bank that 100k people signed up for a newsletter about the idea wouldn't make them suddenly throw money at you. That part was, imho, slightly disingenuous which i'm also afraid to say risks issues under GDPR as "you must be clear with customers what the data is for, it's purpose and usage". I have zero doubt about you having good and pure motives here, I didn't think otherwise for a second and I appreciate that a long rambling, business/ financial terms laden video wouldn't be a good watch but I came away from this feeling disappointed and slightly annoyed that someone who is obviously an intelligent man would publish something with such glaring holes in it. Finally to those who are going to read this and think i'm being hater let me be clear that I AM NOT! I've subscribed to Mentour for several years, comment a reasonable amount and have a love of the aviation industry. I both like and respect him as a content creator and often happily share his content to alert others about him BUT when I see something that I feel is put out wrong / has some issues I will bring it up.

Once again my post wasn't having a go or being mean it was genuinely how I felt after watching the video so I felt it was important to make those points and it shows your integrity to have responded so quickly.

Hi! Do you think I would go public with this if points 1,2 and 3 were not already close to being solved. When I say that I need to prove market, I mean it.

Hello Mentour just send you a mail via your contact messages regarding some contacts within Airbus Pilot Programme, and HSBC Bank in France. Thanks in advance!

I would love to be a pilot. I have had some training as a private pilot, and down in Los Angeles, I flew a 737 sim. But the big stopper? Has always been finances.

I hope to become a pilot once my masters degree is over in 2022. Hopefully, there will be more opportunities by then thanks to people like you!

Yeah, that's my problem, the cost. I work in IT and I hope to save enough money before it's too late to become a pilot.

i am 15 years old do you think i am too old to be given any help or something? and second question does this progam affect Greece too?

@It'sJohny You're asking someone with a masters degree in engineering so I might be a bit biased ;) When studying engineering you get familiar with mathematics and science. You also get a fundamental understanding of technical systems and what they can and cannot do. That is really important skills as a pilot. Here in Sweden we have first 9 years of elementary school that you start when you're 7 years old. After that you can choose different programs of 3-4 years, one which is engineering. At this stage I totally agree with your dad, if you want to become a pilot engineering is the obvious choice and the program that will benefit you the most. Even if you decide to not become a pilot it will in my opinion be the best choice if you are interested in science, mathematics and engineering. When you are done with this secondary level of education at about 20-21 years old it is time for university. This is where you train to become a commercial pilot or if you want to get a bachelors or masters degree in some other topic. If you want to become a pilot it doesn't really make sense to study engineering at the university level. One benefit with studying engineering that is often overlooked is that you more than in other programs learn how to learn. The tempo is often quite high and the subjects are demanding. You have to learn to cooperate with other students and keep the motivation up. That will benefit you in later in life whatever you decide to do.

@It'sJohny I only know about the Swedish glider training but I would guess that it's similar in the EU. You learn the basic theory such as weather, aerodynamics, instrumentation, navigation, how to speak on the radio, human factors and so on. All of which will be covered even more thoroughly when you study to become an airline pilot. This will give you a good head start in those courses. You also learn to fly for real, with an aircraft that is really sensitive and tells you exactly how the air moves around you. You fly by feel and by reading the weather around you without any automatic systems at all. There is no better stick and rudder training you can get and that is something that will benefit any pilot regardless of if they fly a fighter jet or an airliner later. I can also add that Captain Sully, famous for his textbook glider landing on the Hudson River in an Airbus A320, is a glider instructor.

@haqvor and btw my dad says to me to have a 4 year degree in engineering... do u think is worth taking?
It'sJohny (2 months ago)
@haqvor thank you very muxh dude appreciate it and btw does it count in my pilot career? i mean will it be recorded as an achievement or smthing that not a lot of people can do?
haqvor (2 months ago)
I would say absolutely not, you still have a few years left in school before you can start pilot school. You are the perfect age to start flying gliders. Look up a gliding (soaring) club in your area. Learning to fly a glider is the perfect start to any pilot career, not to mention it is great fun and seriously addictive...

That sad thing when i have both asthma and no money to become a pilot fml xD

Grishanya - I don’t know which AME or licensing authority you dealt with but where I am I hold a full class one medical, my asthma is mild/well controlled.
Grishanya (2 months ago)
@Mickey Mouse wait what? I mean i checked the requirements of aviation medical exam and there was a line literally saying any form of asthma is banned from completing that medical exam. But i have like a light form of asthma and i would say i manage its status pretty well so nothing uncomfortable
