If you hadn't been so fortunate to have the opportunities that allowed you to pursue a career in aviation, you'd probably be in their position right now.
(Mr Pseudonymn types this)....

You'll find that being fortunate had nothing to do with it. Roughly half of them (from my exposure to the industry) had a dream and went without a lot of things to achieve it. Many of the (especially) regional pilots are on their second or third career, built on the hard work of the first couple... to achieve their present position.

That (apparent from your wording of your post) intimation that most of us got where we are through luck alone is quite wide of the mark and needed to be addressed.

However you'll find that most of us are as approachable as anyone else should you ever wish to ask anything about the machines we fly.

Have a great weekend.

Regards,

Mr. Pseudonymn.
