I am 28 years old and I was wondering if it is too late to be a pilot now. I am wondwring if it is worth it or not.
Ii was always my dream but I did not have the money.
Now that I have managed the financial part I am wondering if it is too late or not.
I thinking to go to a flight school in America but will I find a job there?

It's never too late. Just as long as you are prepared to start out at the bottom and be taking orders from people younger than you. 5 years from now will be prime time for pilot hirings at major airlines. All the war vets are starting to retire apparently.

For what it's worth, I didn't make my commitment to a career in aviation until I was 26. If you do it be prepared to struggle for a few years. There are precious few people who are lucky enough to avoid having to pay their dues. Don't do it on a lark or a whim - you will probably not make it because you will be in competition with those who are extremely dedicated . Good luck.
