Hey everyone, I'm sure many people have posted a thread like this but every situation is different so here goes. I took private lessons around 7 years ago and quit because it was way too expensive. So now I'm 28 years old, married with a little one on the way. I'm a dozer operator at a coal mine and absolutely love my job. Having said all that I've been dying to get back in the saddle and finish what I started. My dream is to get a part time job at our local regional airport working for a commuter airline. I live in Shreveport, la if that makes any difference. I used to think being an airline pilot was too big for me and I know most will laugh when I say 28 is old but I'm starting to see how fast my life is going by and I want to at least try. Biggest hurdle I see is the ungodly cost of lessons. Does anyone have any first hand experience on what I should do to get there?
