I have 2 hours in a R22 and i just quit flying fixed-wing. My heart wasn't into it.
When I did two lessons in rotary, i loved every second of it. i quit because two reasons. 1. The cost was way too much. 2. There are no jobs.
Now at 27 years of age I realized I should have just chased my dream from the get go.
I have 50k. No debt, no job. I am quite lost, but i am certain I want to fly helicopters. I even stress because If i become a cfi and get hired, I am 6'5 205lbs. It may be hard for me to teach even the rare student I would be lucky to get.
I kind of ruled out military, except i guess the warrant officer program is available. I really do not want to serve though. So that is out of the question.
I'm just lost in all this. Do I find ~ $70,000 loan on top of my $50,000 and go all the way through commercial?
Will my size be an issue in the R22? What should my next steps be?
