My Aviation Journey
From a Childhood Dream to an Airline Captain
by Gerard Mofet

After graduating from flight college with a Commercial Pilot Licence in 1999, and with only $250 in his wallet, a suitcase, a typewriter, his flight bag and an abundance of grit, Gerard Mofet dove head first into the highly competitive world of aviation. He learned quickly that fulfilling his childhood dream of becoming the captain of a major airline would require skill, perseverance, sacrifice, courage, and a can-do spirit. In My Aviation Journey, Gerard shares his personal story and the challenges and experiences he faced, both the exhilarating and adverse, during his past twenty-five years of flying. Not just a remarkable success story, My Aviation Journey is also a road map to help prepare future pilots on where to start learning to fly, how to find that first job, how to prepare for all the evaluations and testing pilots must go through, and how to advance in this career. Get ready to feel inspired.

Flying and airplanes have been Gerard Mofet’s passion since he was ten years old. He immigrated to Canada at a young age and attended CESPA Aviation College between 1997 and 1999, where he received an aviation diploma and a Commercial Pilot Licence. With over 13,000 hours of flying time and twenty-two years of airline pilot experience, Gerard is type rated on seven different airplanes and holds instructor and examiner licences and privileges. He has a great passion for the aviation industry, its safety, and its equal opportunities and to teach and share his aviation knowledge. Gerard is currently a captain on the jet airliner the Airbus A330.
