If you're looking to fly the friendly skies in BitLife then you're going to need to know a few things before making that happen. This process got a lot more complicated in past updates, so you will now need to head to flight school, and then take a test to get your pilot's license!
To become a Pilot in BitLife, you will need to graduate from university, attend 40 hours of flying lessons, and then pass the pilot's test. After that, you will need to hopefully have access to the Pilot's career path.
BitLife Pilot Guide
Most of your stats don't really matter for becoming a Pilot in the game, but being smart is the most helpful. Try to age through life pretty quickly and then once you hit your High School or equivalent for your country then start studying hard. Join at least a few activities and hopefully you'll get yourself a scholarship to University. Go through University as normal but also get a part-time job to get some money. We'll need the cash later to pay for our piloting studies.
Now, the career path only says you need University, but I found it was basically impossible to get the job without having a Graduate degree. So, I would recommend going to Graduate school just to save yourself some headache.
Once you're done with school, go to Activities and then find the Licenses option. You will need to attend Flight School for at least 40 hours. You can do them all in one year, and you can do 10 hours at a time.
After you've got your 40 hours, it's time to take the Pilot's License test. It will cost you $960 to take it, so use our guide below with a whole bunch of the answers from the test.
Now that you have your license, time to find a piloting job. This is a pretty rare career I have found, so you might be looking for a while. If you see anything related to Airlines then I would take that job. It seems like you get more options of that type if you have a career in the field. We are looking for Pilot Trainee, and if you don't see it you can age up or you can close the game out completely and re-open it to get a new batch of careers. Be careful not to age up too far, I have found that you will no longer see it at around 30 and above.
Once you find Pilot Trainee, apply for it and hopefully you'll get an interview. Answer the interview question seriously and you should get the job!
Make sure to work harder each year and keep again up. You will eventually be promoted to Co-Pilot and get a nice boost in salary. Next is becoming a Pilot, then an Airline Captain, and finally a Chief Pilot! You should get the Pilot career achievement when you hit Airline Captain.
