Anyone wanting to become a pilot, whether for an aeroplane, glider, helicopter or hot air balloon, has to complete a clearly defined training path. This includes theory lessons as well as practical training in the aircraft concerned. Pilots for powered aircraft also have lessons in a flight simulator. The training is completed with an exam.

After basic training, pilots can take further training to become an instructor, professional pilot or commercial pilot.
