Re: Requesting advise for career change to Pilot

With regard to PPL costs, I'm budgeting around $25,000 as well as any disposable income over my training period. . I've seen the 15 to 18k figures on some sites.

Re: Requesting advise for career change to Pilot

I'm currently in the same boat. 40 stable career in engineering consulting. But the bug has bit me once again. This time around, I'm going for it, but I'm definitely keeping my day job.
