cheekycapt,
Everybody thinks like you when they are a wannabe. I did too so I dont blame you, however I have to ask you why do you want to be a pilot? I wanted to be a pilot 1. because I love flying (still!) and 2. it's a decent career (barely). Not many who make it to heavy jets are on the breadline but the reality is that if we let our terms and conditions get eroded at the same rate as the last 10 yrs we will be paid less than bus drivers before I retire! Do you think that is fair for all the training and assessment pilots go through??? Would you still want to be a pilot... If you say yes then you probably dont have a car and jumbo mortgage like the rest of us
