Hello everyone, I was layed off recently, so I figured its time to do some training. I have always wanted to learn to fly, but for whatever reason, havent been able to get the ball rolling like I thought I would.. Working full time, and attending school part time, leaves no time to train as a pilot... I have set a goal for myself, to be a commercial certified pilot in at most 5 years, and be able to have a fulltime commercial pilot job in at most 10 years. I am beginning my training soon, but only have the funds to complete possibly the private cert, and IFR cert, before scrounging up the change for the rest. I have read that a 141 school would be the best route, My concerns/questions are: - Is there sufficient work out there for a commercial pilot to build hours before going on to the big leagues? airlines/regionals/ etc.. - I still have to work fulltime while training, but can complete the Private SEL, and possibly the IFR very soon. What should I expect when I go for commercial ratings? - Does anyone have any good advice? Ive made the decision already to commit to this, challenges being of course money, and supporting a fledgling family at the same time.. I need to be able to complete in the most efficient manner, while still being able to earn the credentials to fly competently in the "big leagues"
