With the $700 billion deal dead for now, are banks reluctant to loan money for flight training? I'm planning (been saying that for 2 years now) to move back to the US in March, but am really worried about the economic situation. I've also taken a huge hit on the exchange rate between the US dollar and Korean won (down 21% this year). The Korean currency is at a 5 year low, and since I have all my money saved up here, it doesn't really make sense to convert it to dollars and lose as much as I have. Therefore, I'm weighing whether or not to take out a a loan in the US and keep my money in Korea until the exchange rate becomes more favorable.
