Okay so I'll skip the long story about my life and just summarize it by saying - I've been working as a software developer for 15 years now. I'm single and I have one kid that is graduating high school soon. So now that she is ready to strike out on her own I really have no ties to any particular place and I want to get into aviation, my life dream. I've saved enough to complete my PPL locally at a small FBO to ensure it's for me, but I still have my day job and I'm stacking cash rapidly by living a no-frills life. So I'm ready to move along with it. So my question is really about guiding my future - The idea of being a bush pilot and flying to remote locations intrigues me. It looks incredibly challenging but satisfying. Now I know this sounds kind of whimsical; Oh look at me I'm gonna go join the circus! And that's where my question comes in - how does one set out to do this? Do I just build time as a commercial pilot/CFI/CFII and then start beating the streets? Or is there a "typical" route to get there. I know I'll need float experience. I know I'll need type experience in the standard back country aircraft. But what else? How can I groom myself into a spot? How can I show employers I mean business and I'm capable?
