    extremely new, but have questions

    Hi, I am extremely new to this forum, I am in no way a pilot, yet use to take flying lessons. I am interested in a career in piloting, yet, I am curous if any of you are aware of the economy for aviation. When I started takin lessons, it was 3 years ago, and was told the need for pilots was rising......... that was well before 9/11. Now I am curous if after that tragic event, how the economy for piloting... is the need still high, steady, or going down a slow spiral? I am still very young, am only 20, am engaged, been for past 2 years. I am so excited when it comes to aviation, yet a little troubled when thinkin of takin up the career if financialy it won't do. I realize that is something that can happen anytime, something can always come up. so i guess I am curoius as what predictions can anyone make for the aviation industry in 3 years, since I think that is how long it will take me to obtain my comercial license. Thank you all for any input any of you may have! God bless!

    Now is a good time to start. After you get your commercial license you will need to get a lot of hours in a small company and by the time you are ready for the majors, probably in 6 years, the industry will have turned.
