Reader Questions:

  • I'm having a hard time seeing how I could support the family while in a full time training program
  •  For the first time in my life I found something that I truly desire to learn about. My wife is completing her last year of medical school this spring and will graduate with her MD and a ton of debt in May. Her profession is much like one in aviation where she will start out right at about the same salary with 60­80hr work weeks, but over the next 10 years salary will continue to increase.  ow that I feel I have found my true passion in life is to fly, that has changed.  would like to become an airline pilot or corporate pilot. (I might know the answer after I get through the Private Jet Podcast series!) ­What do you think the best way to go about this is with my financial obligations (loans, family, etc.)?  ow do I become an airline pilot while working a career? Is it possible?
  • Success story from a new Part 135 Pilot.
  • My first love is not really to teach but to fly for an airline, so my emotions tell me to do multi and ifr and take the risk by applying for cathay pacific and hopefully get hired in the next couple of years tops.
  • What do I need to do to make sure I am competitive for airline positions.
