A question for pilots - I want to join you!

    I’m looking to transfer career paths from my current. And have always had an interest in becoming a pilot.
    I’ve done a few single prop lessons in Weston but nothing past that so far.

    I have a bachelors degree in an unrelated field (architectural technology). Would I need to return to college to do a related degree?

    Before I indulge myself any further I have a few questions regarding the process on becoming a pilot and the skills that are beinficial or required

    1) Maths is not my strongest Skill. I’d need a calculator to do pretty basic stuff. Would this be a deal breaker or cause me to seriously struggle in getting licensed?

    2) what would be the expected duration of training and rough costs in Ireland to get to a commercial level

    3) are there any paths anyone would reccomemd besides commmercial flight (cargo, private charter etc?)

    4) what is the day in the life of a pilot like?

    Oh also I’m 5ft 5 male, are the days of minimum height requirement gone?
