Whether you want to do it as a career or as a hobby, it all starts with the Private Pilot course.vion. Once you have completed and passed this course you become a Private Airplane Pilot, this license is issued by the National Aeronautical Authority (ANAC) and allows you to fly single-engine aircrafts with a maximum weight of 5,700kg. The main limitation of this license is that it does not allow you to get paid, that is, you cannot work as a pilot for a company. If your goal is to fly as a hobby, the Private Airplane Pilot license is probably the right thing for you.
Now, what if I want to work as a pilot? Then the Private Pilot License is just the beginning. Once you graduate as a pilot, you must accumulate 200 hours of flight experience, which, together with a theoretical course*, will allow you to become a Commercial Airplane Pilot. With this license you are authorized to work as a pilot, with some minor limitations.
Achieved an experience 500 hours of flight time (from the moment you become a Private Pilot), and together with a theoretical course*, you can become an Airplane Flight Instructor. This will allow you to give flight instruction, that is to say, to teach how to fly to student pilots and other pilots who wish to improve their technique, while at the same time you accumulate more flying experience.
Once you have 900 hours of flight experience, and the corresponding theoretical course*, you can become a 1st Class Commercial Pilot, which enables you to work as a co-pilot in a regular airline.
