Interested in becoming a pilot

My name is Carson and I’ve always wanted to fly since I was a little kid. My credit is not good and have no one to co-sign with me for a loan. I am military and have been looking to go to an actual college with an aviation department. I was hoping to get some insight from some of the pilots on here regarding that route vs a school such as ATP. Also I have A wife and 3 children, I understand the pay your dues aspect of starting out in aviation but at what point will I be able to adequately provide for my family and what steps can I take to improve quality of life for not only myself but my family as well.


I recommend you spend some time in the FAQ section where you’ll find answers to most if not all your questions. Then I encourage you to come back with more specific questions if you have any.
