Hi everyone, I am 43, female and wondering if it is too late to change my career. I am interested in becoming a pilot and getting my CPL with the necessary instrument trainings. My questions are
1.. Is it too late to change career?
2.. Is being female a disadvantage?
3.. Would I be employable after getting CPL?
I appreciate any replies.
Thank you in advance.
Hi Ace 79,
Thank you for your reply..
I should hurry up to chase my dreams then, I have more than a decade to catch up to you.. :)
Good luck to you too.
I have been training commercial pilots for several years now.
Your age may not help but it is not too late. I have trained people older than you who are now working for airlines.
Being a women definitely does not cause any problems in fact it may be an advantage.
There will be a shortage of pilots in a few years and if you start now then you could be ready at just the right time.
Because of your age I would not delay. But as it is such a big financial commitment I would suggest a few lessons at a PPL school first just to check that you enjoy flying and to see if you have any aptitude.
