Hey guys!! I’m working on my PPL right now. My flight test and written exams are coming very soon. But I got an excessive speeding ticket last year, so would it affect my chances to get a job as an airline pilot in the future?? I’m really scared..waiting to hear from you guys soon!! Thankyou!

Nah, you're good. I used to drive like a complete idiot and I'm approved to fly some pretty sensitive stuff.

DUI can screw you for a long time though so watch out for that.

Only if the time it takes to get the ticket makes you late for the interview...
