Financial advice

Hi All,

Want to ask a honest financial question and be open with you. Short intro, helicopter pilot from Germany, have been active in the past on PP before but didn't use PP for years. New account now.
The next issue is what I would like to share with those who are interested and all feedback is appreciated :

H175 captain at 39 years old with 4500 hours, mostly offshore. Enjoying the (shady) offshore world but me and my family have some financial trouble, almost at the end of every month.
Big debt (minus 105K euro) , double housing, double cars. Hardly any money saved for the future. Wasn't really planned like this but its my own responsibility and fault.
Active on all the social media and a nice network from the past 10 years.

But I don't see how I can reduce the debt and build some extra money soon. I need to make some big buks if there are any left in this industry. Anyone advice for a way out ? (except robbing a bank?)
Jobs in the middle east, africa, brunei, or somewhere else? Moving with the family to a safe compound is no problem, 28on/28 off no problem. Flying the H175 ? Any advice ? I can feel a bit down while having a great job, lot of mistakes and surely would do things differently when looking back at the past.

Hope to hear from someone in a DM or with a reply.

Thank you in advance.
