I am certain an airline pilot is the life for me and i think i will go to PTC to train but i was wondering if it would stupid of me to start training at a young age like 18 or should i hold off a while. The reason im worried about this is i dont know if i would be capable yet of taking this step and if i am not what should i do to kill time.
I started training for my PPL at 16 and i always say, The longer your doing somethin, the wiser you'll be.
I started just after my junior cert, and finally got my PPL on summer holidays from the 1st year of college college.
I studied Avionics in Carlow IT. Did it help? Of course it did.
I'm working fulltime for just over 2 years and am currently studying for the ATPL's.
Like yourself i cant remember not wanting to be an airline pilot.
That my long story cut short, Any more q's you have, PM me.
PS: Do it all moduler, It's cheaper and, it will take a good bit longer
As for waiting airbus, what the hell for ? IF you have the cash just do it ya jammy dodger, loadsa people would love to be in your shoes.

I think the best thing you could do is both! go to college, do something technical, then fly once or twice a month get the PPL! I'd do a course on the cert...diploma..degree route rather than just straight into a degree. that way if you end up leaving to train full time you'll at least have gotten a cert or diploma out of it!
If you're into it in a big way like most of us it'll bite you and you'll find the money somewhere!! then its just head down into the ATPL's because you'll have the ppl done already!
If I were you thats what I'd do! Oh, and don't forget the Class one!!! No amount of money can get you a licence if you can't get that!!
Hope its good advice!
