My name is Rogelio. Im 26 years old and I’m very interested in pursuing a career in aviation. I’d be thrilled to enroll at ATP but there is one problem. I made one big youthful mistake in my life 6 years ago and would like to know if it would make it impossible for me to become a commercial airline pilot. In 2012 I filed a false stolen vehicle report. In 2014 I plead no contest to the misdemeanor. I didn’t serve jail time. I paid due fees and 3 years of informal probation and case was closed. This is my only criminal offense. I regret it everyday and I’d hate if this ruins my future. I have excellent work history and excellent credit. Not sure if that would mean anything to airlines.
Would this hinder my chances of becoming an airline pilot?
Would getting the misdemeanor expunged do me any good?
