I've just finished university and will be graduating a masters in astrophysics this July, so now it's time to start thinking about a career. I've always wanted to be a pilot, but I could do with a little help finding a good place to start looking. I've had a quick look at the CTC Wings and Oxford Aviation academies, and will certainly be reading up all summer. Do we have any trained pilots on here? A major question I have is with regards to funding the training. I read it generally costs about £60,000 to get your commercial license, so getting some kind of sponsorship/loan is a definite. I'm taking the next 12 months (ish) out to build my savings, so it seems like the right time to sort out all this.
