I'm no pilot, but I watch one on YouTube. Follow StevoKinevo. If you reach out he might give you advice. In a video he said he went to a flight school to get his private pilot ratings. Then started flying at a small airline In South America that serviced rural communities as a copilot. Then as he got his hours in, he moved up to other airlines. Now he seems to do videos flying for a small commercial company that runs business charters around Florida and the Bahamas.
