I wonder just how many guys like me that graduate from flight school ultimately never find any work. Do you have any idea? Or is it true that everyone eventually finds a flying gig somewhere at some...

Thanks for that! I have asked around and the uptake of instructors is on standby. Even though the instructors at my college were working off their feet to get us through the course. I will consider...

Do you think there is a demand for instructors now? Worried about more debt because I already have way too much debt from all of the training to date.
