Don't you worry about the pay, start thinking about the vast amount of material you need to study in a very short period, the loan you need to get (unless you are VERY wealthy) and the life you will live (a lot from home...)
Pay comes later buddy (No pilot only flies flies for the good pay, we fly because we love our job)

See PPRUNE.com!!! the best pilot forums on the net.

I know I totally love to travel . I was just sort of "wondering" about the pay . Aviation is something that I have always enjoyed and theres a local sort of collage right here in la guardia that I can get in with a little help from student loans . 2 years left   Thanks for your help guys .

No offense Tino...but some NWA and AA pilots seemed to be more interested in pay than flying when they both when on strike a few years ago!
