Answer by Thomas Zerbarini:

Get motivated and do lots of research to map your path and find the money.

Learning to fly is very expensive and time consuming. Most folks that want to be a commercial pilot have a burning desire to do so and it motivates them through years of hard work. They sacrifice so much in their lives to accomplish that ultimate goal–to be a successful commercial pilot.

The military is an option and requires excellent grades. You'll also want to enroll in an ROTC program to get ahead in your military experience.

ROTC Programs

If the military is not your thing, then you can go the college route. There is financial assistance available through a college venue that will help you pay for the cost of your degree and flight training. Check out AOPA's Flight Training website on Colleges:

– Flight Training

You can also sign up for a free 6 month subscription to the Flight Training magazine on this website.

Good luck on your adventure.
