why can't it be a good thing. It is about flying airplanes. It is good to be able to do something you like.
I would have joined the kool aid drinkers at ERAU, worn top-gun jackets and sun glasses, Taken on even more debt, maybe do a little PFT and get a "job" flying a jetstreamRegardless of how you feel about flying now, would you get into aviation again if you knew what was in store? Especially if you started in the early 90's or 2001 or any other stellar stretch of aviation hiring. Yes, No, or Hell No
HAHA....nice. Guess you read the part and just focused on that. Im not saying i would have ONLY flown airplanes while in high school. I would have just gave up having a fast ass car and spending money on go fast parts/speeding tickets. Either way its in the past and im here now....its just one of those what ifs.So you would have chosen airplanes over hot high school a$$? You are the only pilot in the world who has ever or will ever say that.
Not true better times are coming because of the worldwide pilot shortage. Even at today's wages and benefits pilots are in the upper 10% of all wage earners in the country. If you like to fly airplanes, it is a great way to make a living. Still living the childhood dream.I would never have done it, knowing what I know now. The pay and benefits will only get worse. For those of you thinking about, or just getting into this business, it's not too late to do something else.
