Happy New Years to all! I will be retiring this August from the Air Force after serving 20 years and I want to take on a new career flying these amazing machines that I have worked on for so long. I am currently finishing my PPL at the aero club in my base. I do have an associates degree in Aviation Maintenance. A few questions that I need some help with:
- Will my degree be enough to get me into a regional? ( I do expect to continue my education after being established with my new career)
- What other things besides upgrading my medical to a 1st class can I do to hit the ground running?
- Financing scares me and my wife and I know that it will be a small sacrifice for a few years until established in a solid base, what are some recommendations financially that you can offer to help this short transition?
- I am interested in the ATP 100 days training with PPL credit, I understand that the program is like drinking from a fire hose but I am up for the challenge, how do I prepare my family for this period of intense training?
My apologies for the wide range on questions but August fast approaches and I want to make solid decisions with your expert inputs!
Thank you in advance! and I look forward to all your mentoring tips!
