Please post a link showing all or most of the rules for controlling and flying a real Boeing 747-400?
I want to become a real 747 pilot.
But I'm still in 10th grade so I have a few years to study.

As far as the pilots are concerned:
A pilot licence, at least private pilot with a 747 type rating -
Instrument rating required to file IFR flight plans and airspace, if not, remain VFR -
Radio operator restricted licence -
Medical 2nd class (3rd class if FAA) -
As far as an operation certificate and aircraft documents:
AOC issued by country of registry (i.e. FAR 125 in USA) -
Registration certificate -
Radio station licence -
Flight log and maintenance manual (with MEL) with inspections as requied -
Maps and charts as required for the flight -
Flight plan on file as required by ATC -
Next time, rephrase your question to "I want to be an airline pilot" -
If your airline has 747s, you might fly one... if they are not retired by then -
Edit - since you are in 10th grade -
Study mathematics, physics, geography, English etc.
Then go to college, and get a 4 yrs degree -
Finally, get trained for a license as pilot -
By the time you are 30 or 35 of age, you might become pilot with an airline -
And to fly a desk top flight sim game, you can fly a 747 now -
You do not need all that - and you will tell "real pilots" how to fly airplanes -
.Source(s): You asked for it, you got it - I am former "real" 747 pilot -

Quite a few years, start with www.faa.gov and look at Part 91 on Private Pilot, that's where you'll start.
