My name is Jon. I am 22 yo and have always had an interest in aviation and flying. Growing up I can remember wanting fly ever since I was little to young teens but since money was tight in my family that dream never came to be. I’m now twenty-two. I work in the pharmaceutical industry making around 50k making IV medications for terminally ill people. I have a G.E.D and a four year old daughter with my girlfriend. I am very smart although the high school equivalent would say otherwise I just had a lot going on in life my senior year if high school and was not able to complete for my diploma. Now that I have a little background my question is what does experienced pilots like yourself recommend someone like me to do to try to get started in this field, if I should try at all? I’m based in Charlotte, NC and have a few schools here to chose from. I’ve been researching for awhile but obviously having input from actually pilots currently in the field will help me out a lot. What steps should I be taking to eventually 5-10 years from now to help set my family up for our future?
Thank you, Jon!
