Just a question,
You go to uni, gain a degree and start flying training. You get a job with a very good airline on decent Ts and Cs.

Unfortunately at 45 you lose your med cat and therefore cannot continue as a pilot.

Exactly how is the degree you have going to help you? It was completed 22 years ago and you are no more qualified and less current than all of the recent graduates in said field. You have also demonstrated that you would rather do something else than employed in that role.

I read a lot here about " something to fall back on " and it may well be exactly that but in many cases it wont be.

Im not trying to burst any bubbles here I just want people to make the most informed decision.

I meet many people who due lack of knowledge are making or have made the wrong decision.
