Hello all, I’m completely new here so I apologize if there is another thread for this already. The story is that when I was a young high school boy; I was going through troubling times and was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana. I was only 17 at the time, but was charged as an adult. After going to court, I was assigned court supervision and was told if I completed court supervision, that it is not a conviction and that it would not show on my record. My license were suspended while I wasn’t on court supervision, because I was given a drug test when arrested for the dui which caused the suspension. I have a strong desire to become a commercial airline pilot, but I am concerned that I will spend a significant amount of money on pilot school and not be able to find a lucrative job once I graduate. I am 24 Years old now and about to earn my bachelors in business, and I have not been in any trouble since the arrest at 17.
With all of that said, what are my chances of becoming a comercial airline pilot with a “non-conviction” dui at the age of 17? I work extremely hard and will do whatever it’s takes to obtain my goals, but I am curious about the effects of this dui. Please don’t be afraid to be blunt with me, honest advice is my desired outcome.
Thanks in advance for reading this far, and responding! Much appreciated
