Ok, I need some input. I'm 28 and have a PPL with about 68 hours. I'm looking to change professions into aviation. I've been accepted into the Mesa Pilot Development Program in New Mexico (I currently live on the east coast). (There is a discussion group on the program) In short, it is 19 months long and you come out CIME rated. If you pass the program you are guaranteed an interview (currently a 97% hire rate of grads) and once they start hiring you get a slot as a FO. Question is, at my age (I don't think I'm old) is this program a good bet or am I better off at a flight school (FSI, ComAir, etc.) and go the instructor, cargo, etc. route? Also, my goal is not the majors, I'd be happy with a little ol' government flying job. Any advice is appreciated.
