First of all, you need to have a minimum height of 1.7m. There is no minimum education requirement to attain a private plane license. But you’ll need at 5 credits to become a commercial plane pilot.

But the problem is that to able to become a commercial plane pilot you’ll need to attain a few specific licenses and all of it are very very costly. A minimum of RM174,000 is required before you can become a commercial plane pilot. That is just a conservative figure which does not include accommodations and daily expenses. Thats the reason why pilots are paid so heavily.

You can check out a few flying schools in Malaysia. I know there is one in Melaka and Johor and its very costly as you’ll need to practice as many times as possible to improve your skills, but you’ll have to pay for the fuel for your flight practices.

Here’s a relatively easier way to become a pilot but there is price to pay also. Join the Malaysian Royal Air Force.

Hope you made the right choice. I wanted to become a pilot too but ended studying in university due to the high cost. Good lucks!
