I’m in my late 20’s and currently in a carreer that I could walk away from for training. When I mean walk away from, I mean quitting, financially it would be tight. I live in Jersey, which is an expensive state to live in.
I always wanted to be a pilot but got talked out of it by a recruiter when I was in HS citing the price. I shouldn’t have listened to him, he said it would be 200k plus to learn.
I started simming a year ago on the Airbus Boring and Crjs, thinking it would current itch but it’s made it worse.
I guess my questions are.
How hard financially is it not having a steady source of income for 6 months.
How well does being a flight instructor help financially
Could I live on a first year regional airline salary and pay off my loans?
I guess it’s the money that is holding me back. If anyone who switched carreers to come a pilot could weigh in on the expierence I’d grately appreciate it.
