Iím creeping up to 30. I was a lazy sod at school so I donít have any A-Levels and I donít exactly have amazing GCSE results either.
However, on the upside, since then Iím doing very well for myself. I work in the city and I have a good, well paid job. In other words, Iím not stupid.
That aside, I feel like I havenít fulfilled my ambition to be a pilot. So Iím thinking of a career change.
Iím assuming I could go back and get my exams GCSEís/A-Levels but then what? Do I still need to fork out the £60k + required in order to finance my training or would I be able to apply, like the other school leavers and be considered for a position based on my qualifications? Is it even worth re-doing the exams?
Iím beginning to think that either I need to win the lottery in order to do this or maybe I should just accept the fact that I should have tried harder at school and I will never be able become an airline pilot (grumble grumble).
How do these 18/19 year olds afford all the training?
