Learn the basics of how to fly a plane in this Howcast video.
Hi, my name is Josh Kallenberg and I'm here at the Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles, California. I've been flying professionally for about 13 years, and now I have the pleasure of flying this Gulfstream G450 which is a lot of fun and exciting. And today I'm going to talk to you about becoming a pilot. The next, uh, certification you get would be a commercial pilot certification. Doesn't mean you're gonna go out there and start, uh, you're gonna be captain of a 747 right away. All that's basically saying is you can get compensated for flying unlike a private pilot certification. Uh, so you, you'll start to uh, take these odd jobs of maybe towing banners across the beach, or uh, you know, flying medical supplies, uh and will allow you to go ahead and get your certified flying cert-, certification, get played for that, and eventually uh, it would allow you - with time and experience - technically, to be captain of certain larger aircraft.
