Disterric Posted November 21, 2013 Report Share Posted November 21, 2013 Hello! first post on this forum hoping to find people who are in a similar position as me, or have experience in this field and are involved with the careers. I'll try to keep it short, I am trying to get a realistic perception laid out in front of me before I start investing resources into training. I'm 21 and my idealistic goal is to get through the lows of what it takes to chose flying as a career, at first glance it looks like a very promising and straight forward road to get qualification and the actual job. However I know that its probably really unlikely, despite what some resources say. I feel like the outlook for this career is actually not very good for how much of an effort it takes to get to the point where it is possible to start making good wages consistently. I can make it through low hours with limited pay for quite a while, but what does it take to get the career rolling and start making a nice living? is it worth it? I have a feeling a very small margin of pilots ever get to this point, and those that do probably want to keep their job. Is it a struggle to find work even with the required hours/qualifications? or is it less unforgiving? I would like to make a firm decision based off multiple sources before I start dedicating myself to making things happen. Would love to know what you think! and thanks more than a lot.
