All of those hours you’ve spent playing flight simulation games can be brought to life. Plus, pilot gear just looks cool.
Although you can’t get a pilot’s certificate until you turn 16, you can start flight training at any age. So while your peers are bragging about driving a car, you can brag about flying a plane.
There’s still a need for qualified professionals in the aviation industry, and not just pilots. We need engineers,tower controllers, mechanics, aerial photographers, and other specialized positions, making this industry an attractive career option.
