As a little background, I wil be 61 in February, always enjoyed flying, but it's been an on and off thing over the years basically just because it's so expensive. Started in '79, didn't get my private until 23 years later at the end of 2001, but then got my instrument the next year. Never really used the instrument, and haven't flown since April of '06. I have a little over 250 hours. When I say 'career change', it wouldn't be really changing careers per se, as I'm basically retired. My wife is a RN and works at a hospital here in Atlanta. But what I was thinking about doing, since I don't fly like I would like, was getting my commercial and then my CFI and become a flight instructor where I can satisfy my desire to fly and be around aviation. The question is, do you think this is too late at 61? I'm in good health, work out regularly, etc. How are flight schools about hiring someone who is older? I mean I know I have the skills to do it, just not sure what's out there at this age. I did talk to the marketing director at one of the flight schools here in Atlanta at a Rusty Pilots seminar that AOPA sponsors and he seemed to think it would be a good 'second career'. Although when I called him later and left him a message to ask some questions, he never returned my call. lol. Anyway, I'd just like to get your thoughts on this, advice, wisdom, warnings, etc, at this age. Thanks!
