Welcome to the tourist office
The Wikivoyage tourist office is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in the world. Wikivoyage volunteers will do their best to find the relevant information (or just reply off the top of their expert heads) and reply to you.
Before you ask your question here, be sure to search our travel guide for the destination or topic you're considering. Many questions are already answered within our guides! In addition, some of our destinations have docents who have volunteered to answer questions about specific places. If neither of those avenues bear fruit, then please ask away!
This page is for travel-related questions only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub. Queries regarding general information on non-travel topics may be made at Wikipedia's Reference desk; some topics tangentially related to travel include:
Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.
Answered questions will be moved to the Archives after two weeks of inactivity.

How can I get my question answered?
This is a travel guide that anyone can edit and that relies entirely on volunteer contributions. We do our best, but nothing on this page or elsewhere on the site can be guaranteed to be up-to-date or entirely accurate.

The interests and abilities that a person would have who wants to do a pilot Asked by: 220.127.116.11 21:43, 8 September 2022 (UTC)
- I don't know what the question is (do a pilot of what?), but it doesn't seem related to travel. This is not a career-counseling site. Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:44, 8 September 2022 (UTC)
- Web search for "pilot training" will turn up dozens of sites. Here's one for the US:
- Two things you need are excellent eyesight & good English. I think the training is often both difficult & expensive. You might get training free by joining your country's Air Force, but would they choose you as a pilot?
- There are different categories of pilot license, private pilot vs. commercial pilot, extra qualifications needed for multi-engine aircraft or for flying using the instruments in bad weather. In Saudi Arabia I met several pilots who needed a certain number of hours on multi-engine planes before they could even apply for training on the big aircraft that major airlines use; they were getting their hours by flying business jets.
