I always had big dreams growing up and one of the things I really wanted to accomplish was getting a pilots license. My best friend's dad was a pilot for one of the major airlines and he would on occasion get our family a significant discount on flights. I was very lucky growing as I was able to go to many places around the world and see a lot of different cultures.
After graduating college the first thing I wanted to do was go to pilot school to begin my training to work for one of the major airlines. I also figured that if I could do well financially that someday owning a plane would be in my future. With good training at a quality pilot school I would be on my way to getting a license to operate a plane.
I carefully researched all of the pilot schools since it was very important that I find a place that was affordable and also had job placement opportunities. Thanks to my parents who were very supportive I was able to secure enough money to go to pilot school to train and become a professional.
It's not complicated and if you are willing to take a few months to really focus on learning you too can become a pilot. There are some great schools in the USA and you can even get financial aid to help you pay for the whole thing. I guess the lesson here is, if you really want something go out and get it.
