Hi Guys, I need expert advise from you.Please

I am going to start PPL course and i'm planning to get CPL, therefore i want to ask several questions. 

Once i get CPL on C152 with night rating and multi engine ratings, than what type of career i can have on this because I want to be an airplane pilot.

After getting CPL what ratings you guys suggest to get?

    You’re gonna need more than a C152 for this…

    The 152 can get you your private and instrument (if properly equipped), but for commercial you’re gonna need something complex, such as a C172RG.

    Same for the multi; Last I checked a 152 only has one fan up front, so you need to find something like a Piper PA44 Seminole or a Beechcraft BE76 Duchess. Side note: I personally prefer the 76 and recommend that… It’s also possible and sometimes advantageous (depending on who you talk to and your financial state) to do your commercial in the multi so you walk away with more ME time and an easy SE add-on.

    And by the way, there’s no such thing as a “night rating”…

    We can’t assume that the poster is from the U.S. There is such a thing as a night rating in a country as close as Canada.
