42 Years Old, Second Career?

Recommended Posts

Dear El Guapo,

 

Well done sir! Realistic if a tad cynical but had to be said especially given potential 'starryeyedness' of OP as indicated by his replies.

 

Well thought out and well delivered. Anyone thinking of getting into this biz should read that gem.

If he is still in limbo I would also agree to STAY AWAY as a career. As a hobby go for it if you have the $$$. Essential Helicopters North Bay has an awesome family of trainers Lavern is great. I worked with them at Gateway and I'm their favorite wrench :P well I think so anyways. Whatever you choose put your family first and if you do want to do it for a living do it part time "if that's possible".

As I sit here in Amsterdam waiting for my connecting flight, I noticed this thread popped up again....was wondering also if Gunny ever followed through?

 

Naysayers are a hoot....the ones that grumble and complain the most, are usually ones that never should have gotten into this industry in the first place....:(

 

I'm closing in on 40 years, and have never regretted doing this...I'm still having the time of my life, and getting paid to see and fly the world.

You know what they say about assuming Helog. I love my job and they guys I work with. That being said if you think getting into this industry at 42 is wise in this day and age then you need a breathalyzer in the cockpit. I wouldn't recommend getting into this industry (today) to a 20 year old with no wife and kids. And I repeat I love what I do.
