One of the things I realized on my recent vacation was that I would rather spend the money and time getting a pilots license instead of an MBA. At least I would enjoy the studying part and it's something I've always wanted to do, and still do. Unfortunately, I was told at a pretty young age that I don't have the right personality to be a pilot, and I gave up on trying to become a pilot. Now, at 31, I find myself doing accounting work that I quite frankly hate and would love to get out of it, but the chance now of flying for a 'legacy' carrier seems slim. I had always wanted to fly DC-10 or 747 for UA
...again, chance of that seems really slim nowadays. I wouldn't mind flying for a regional or cargo carrier...as long as I could fly and make money! That would make me a lot happier than dealing with accounting shit, trust me.
Thanks for the cost/time estimates, and one of the things I have going for me is that I am within walking distance of PAE
, where there are flight schools, and planes fly over my house all the time.
What are the time/cost estimates to get a multi-engine and commercial rating, enough to be competitive for airlines?
And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!
