hey everyone! my name is Damian and I have really been struggling lately on deciding what to do and/or which route to take to become the pilot I have always wanted to become since I was a kid. A little about me: 22 year old from Alabama with a great personality.. grandmother was a flight attendant.. graduated high school in 2004.. currently working as a mortgage assistant/teller at a bank.. ok so, i have always dreamed of becoming an airline pilot much like Doug one day.. problem: kicking myself in the butt for not joining the Air Force when i graduated to persue my dream.. I backed out because of some certain situations. To make a long story short: I have recently decided to stop being afraid of not making it all the way and go for it and check out some flight schools. I thought about the Air Force still, but I don't have my college degree yet, so I wouldn't go in ranked, and I wouldn't be able to get out probably til I'm 30. So, I have been checking out a few schools.. ATP, Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, and National Pilot Academy are a few.. I have actually filled out everything for Spartan and I am already accepted.. could start on July 13th 2009 if I decide to. But I am starting to reconsider after doing more research.. came across some unhappy students on some review sites and it is really expensive.. is flight school worth it?? I am willing to make sacrifices to live my dream.. just really terrified of not getting great training or becoming infested with debt... anyone heard of Spartan? any help please? any other suggestions???
