If you are an Aircraft mechanic can you fly planes?
I am asking this question because i want to go in the #aviation field of aircraft #mechanic and i love the idea of #flying #planes too. #aircraft-mechanic #general-aviation
You have to get a pilot's licence to fly most planes. As an aircraft mechanic I've gotten to run planes and taxi them around, which was fun, but pilots learn a lot of stuff that mechanics don't need to know, like what rules apply in what type of airspace. Getting an A&P doesn't qualify you to fly.
