Height Limit for airline pilot


(Greg Black) #1

Hey, I am 6’8” but my dream has always been to become an airline pilot. I know I can get through the training because I have done introductory flights and it was fine. Will my height be a problem while trying to get a job with a major airline, even if I have all the appropriate licences and certification?

Thanks

You will not have any problems with your height at the majors, but I should mention that ATP has a height restriction of no taller than 6’3” due to the size airplanes they use.
