    22 YEAR OLD, SOME COLLEGE, AVG GRADES, STRONG DESIRE TO FLY

    I cant seem to find any information on becoming a pilot with my situation.  As the subject states, I am a 22 year old student taking some time off from school.  I currently am in real estate which obviously is not going so well.  I have about 3 1/2 years of college, mostly just core classes. I was going for a business degree but became bored with the idea.  My grades are average because like I said I was not happy with where I was and what I was studying.  I know that with my combination of a strong desire to travel and fly that this is what I want to do. 

    So with all of that said I am just looking for a little guidance or information on what I should do.  I don't have a preference of which service I choose, just so long as I get to fly.  I have been considering Coast Guard, Air Guard, or Navy.

    Thanks in advance!

    I also meant to say that I have corrected vision at 20/10, and am in excellent physical condition.

    Look into either AFROTC or NROTC.

    Well, if you wish to fly in the Air Force you're going to need to finish that degree.

    If you have 3 1/2 years of college I strongly suggest riding out the boredom and finishing that degree.

    It will help you whatever you decide to do, including becoming a pilot. You're 22 years old still. Young. You can do whatever you want. Whatever you desire, go for it. If a degree will help you get there, don't let boredom be a factor.

    If you want, why not get some lessons at a local flight school? If you really like it, get your pilot licenses there.

    Hi.

    You did not mention what you were studying.

    If you were studying engineering courses, that will be great for your attempt to become a pilot, coz pilot have to know not only how to fly a airplane, but also how does the aircraft fly.

    That is most important thing which will probably save you and your partner under most urgent situations.

    Nevertheless, you should get some good courses when being trained. What I am saying is it will do a lot help if you have a engineering background.

    Good luck~!
