Hi! I am a fourteen year old, ninth grade homeschooled student who is dual enrolled in college courses. I went for my discovery flight a few weeks ago and also received my class one medical clearance. My plan is to enroll in meteorology next fall (2020) after completing my college English and math courses.
My question is this: I am scheduled for a two- hour flight training lesson tomorrow. My parents are concerned about spending a lot of money at this point for me to gain experience and log hours. They are willing to do one two-hour session (at about $400 each) per month for the next year. However, they are concerned that this may not be the best training option for me. They are questioning if I should wait until I am older. I am thinking that it would be good to be able to get a total of 24 hours this year in my log book and then begin taking classes for aviation. At least that way I know it is what I want to do.
Is it ok to go slow like this and just do one two-hour lesson each month?
