Test pilot

#1 Post by scramjet » Tue Apr 19, 2011 5:31 pm

Hello

Those of you out there that have experience being a test pilot, I have a couple of questions.

1. how old were you when you got the position
2. do you like it
3. how many hours would someone need

Can you steer me in the right direction

Thank You

I am not a test pilot but I have a few friends that are test pilots and they appear to be a some of the happiest professional pilots that I have ever met. Military background and then National Research Council flying jobs. Of course there are only a dozen or so of them in Canada so not easy positions to get.
