My name is David and I am retired Military and am thinking of using my GI Bill to get through flight school. I would love to get my commercial pilots license, but I am almost 50 so I know I have limited years left. I flew while in the service, just not behind any controls and I do miss flying.
I have been retired for about 3 years and I have been putting in over 50 hrs. a week at my current job. I am going to be moving to Arizona and looking for a new start. Some of my buddies have been talking about becoming a pilot and have told me all the great reasons why I should. It sounds great, but I know there has to be a side that I don’t see. We talk about the positive side of things, but what are the down sides?
What are the down sides to being a pilot? Hours, pay, getting the seniority you need to move up? Can someone shed a little light on this?
