    My name is Saeideh Panahi. I am a thirty-years-old Iranian girl.I
    gratuated from highschool in mathematics in order to choose piloting
    as a major in a university because I really love it.
    In addition,my diploma average is 14.33 out of 20
    .As women are not entitles to become airline pilots, I had to decide
    on a major which could be the best choice finally ,I selected computer
    engineering .
    After recieving my bachelor’s degree, I found out I couldn’t stop
    thinking of pilot cources.so ,I’ve decided to continue this major in a
    foreign college.
    I would be very grateful if you answered questions below
    How long does it take to finish pilot cources?
    Is it vital to present a special English degree?
    Do you have any limitations for Iranians?
    How much do all pilot cources cost?
