Aircraft Pilot, Corporate Jet in Houston:
"College Is Overrated And Over Priced."
Just work at getting your flight training and skip the degree. Excel in your field by putting in your efforts and energies into your skill instead of making a student loan payment. Stay flexible and free from getting established in any one city or relationship. This will allow you to move where the opportunities are, to grow in your career. Aviation is very dynamic as an industry and sector of the economy. It has volatility greater than most other industries. Staying flexible will allow one self to ebb and flow with the cycles of the industry as well. Make connections. No matter how good of a pilot or employee you maybe, if you do not make connections, it is hard to get a foot in the door. Lastly, the industry is a small industry. You will meet people and then run into them somewhere again down the line. DO NOT burn bridges.
