Hi all! I have been reading many topics in this forum the last several days. Thank you Chris, Adam and Tory for helping and answering so many questions from all of us beginners.
I feel quite lost and am in need of some direction. I have completed an intro flight and as I suspected I loved it! I am 39 years old currently working 30 hours a week and attending school averaging 10 credits a semester. At the rate I am going I have 4 years left before I receive my bachelors. I do have a family I need to help support so I can not quit work to focus on aviation.
I am not sure if I should put off aviation until I am closer to my degree or of I should start slowly hacking away at hours now. I am free weekends and a few hours after work or before school. I picture myself getting my CPL, MEI, CFI, and CFII so I can quit my current job and work as an instructor for income and to get hours.
My questions would be, should I wait until I am closer to my degree before starting to pursue aviation? Should I start now so I can quit my current job and be a flight instructor soon as possible? I would typically wait until I have my degree but unfortunately I am not getting any younger and I feel pressure to get going ASAP.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
