To the safety of sky, I want to become a airline pilot.

Commercial Pilot, Flight Instructor, General Aviation, Student Pilot

Hello. I'm a 18 years old university student in Japan. I'm Japanese. 

I'd like to ask a direct question to all of those who are working or was working in aviation industry in some way. I want practical advise about processes I need to go through to become a professional airline pilot. I welcome any kind of answers from anybody.

My ambition is to become a professional pilot of major airlines(for example, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, Canada air, Emirates, British airways etc). In Japan, there are some way to become a pilot and I searched all of them as far as I could. Some people will wonder why i don't pursue my dream in my home country. I have many reasons. But this is mainly  because I was fascinated by airlines overseas. I used to live in berkeley, California. I owe my first flying experience to United Airlines 9 years ago. Pilots showed me their flight deck. I was fascinated by something invisible at the moment. I finally decided to get out Japan and attend university in the U.S or flight school in foreign countries. I decided to devote myself utterly to what I pursue, taking over the spirits of Bushido(the way of Samurai).

Since I'm still ignorant of foreign aviation affair, please tell me anything Thanks for reading this!
