How do I get the pilots license early? I want to miss the flying school
this time round as last time it gave me heartache.

Do I just find a plane and fly it around? How long do I have to fly it
before I get the license?
thanks.

sorry you still have to do the school for the missions which follow. I
think ,like all of the things you gain for doing over a period of
time, you doing a lot of flying before you get to the school will help
you pass. You do get your license simply by flying around. Can't
recall exactly how many rotations of the 'world' you have to do but it
is quite tedious as you don't have much to look at. I tend to fly anti
clockwise and I put the red marker in the corner to the left of the
direction I am flying in then I aim to its right. If you keep the
marker to your left at all times you won't get a wanted level for
flying over prohibited land mass. Just keep an eye out and when you
know you've passed the marker move it up to the next corner, but
remember to keep flying to the side of it furthest from land.


jees, that sounds complicated and it is really easy , just looooong
and boring. :o )

Well after deciding maxed out flying skills must give me some sort of
advantage at the flight school (stuck on the blasted circle the
airfield one) I came up with a nice little technique...

First of all get you self a matchstick or something similar, then make
sure CJ has plenty of fat on him, grab a plane in LV, fly north until
your well over the sea, press down Q + W (or W+ E) jam the matchstick
between the keys to make em stay down, check that you're not decending,
go away and do something more interesting... Come back a couple of
hours later and you should have full flying skills, when I say CJ
should have fat on him I really mean it, otherwise you lose muscle and
health!

I guess you could fly south or east or Los Santos land mass and try the
same trick - not tried it myself.

Well if after all that I still have to do those horrible learning to fly
missions, then I will not bother.

If you're playing it on the PC you can download a trainer (do a google
search for - san andreas trainer pizzadox) You can then max out all of your
skills at the press of a button and also get more money.

Don't be suprised if you fly south-east from LS,
that you spawn extra gang territory in SF.
20 minutes real time, and back.

I couldn't get the keys to stay down (low profile laptop keys), so I
ended up drowning. I got the pilots licence, but now CJ is still a
bloater. Ho hum.
