Hi guys.. Im 18 years old at the moment and I plan to study some type of engineering at a University in chile.. When I finish college I would love to start my path on becoming a commercial pilot. My career lasts 6 years in chile for a professional degree.. I will be around 24-25 years old when I finish. Then I want to play my cards and start training for my commercial pilot license.. Do you guys think I still have a chance at that age?? Hopefully I can start by getting my private pilot license before I graduate and be a step ahead. I think i will definitely take my courses in the US since its better overthere but much more costly.. Oh well but it will pay-off in the long run.. Give me your opinions please...

25 definitely isn't too old. At my airline we have a lot of guys between the ages of 25-35 who just finished school. Things move really quickly once you get that first job in the industry.
Have you ever thought about doing your training in Canada?
