This is Ace and this is my first time using this blog. I just wanted to get some opinions on something that I am thinking of doing. I am thinking of becoming a helicopter pilot. I have always wanted to fly since I was little and there is an opportunity for me to do this here in Idaho Falls while still keeping my current job and completing the course in about 1 year. There is a shortage of pilots right now for the amount of jobs out there. This is will continue to get bigger as the Vietnam pilots will be retiring in the next few years. The training company will also hire me after I am done so I can get more flight hours while getting paid to do it. One draw back to this is that it will cost around $80,000 to do. I look at it as an investment in my future just like anyone else that spends that much or more to go to college. I would really appreciate it if anyone that reads this would leave a comment on what they think of this Idea whether it be good or bad.
