Advice appreciated from Pilots in the game

Hi All,

I am 30 and am considering a career change from a finance professional (Accountant) to a Pilot.

I have a few questions and would be grateful of any input:

1) I have applied for the Easyjet & Aer Lingus Cadet schemes however the chances of being accepted I appreciate are slim. With this, would it be a good or bad idea to fund the training myself?

2) If after paying out the best part of 80-100k on training what are the realistic chances of getting a job and general career prospects?

3) What is the money like for new cadets and when does the money start improving?

4) And probably most importantly, would you recommend this career or stick to what I'm doing and complete the PPL for fun?

Many thanks in advance for you advice.
