Answer by Thomas Zerbarini:
Go and get your private pilot certificate. You'll know then if it's an endeavor you want to undertake.
Even if you don't go all the way to become an airline pilot, to have obtained your private pilot certificate and be able to call yourself one of the few aviators of the world is a prize worth having. Not as a bragging right to others, but as a personal achievement for you to admire.
I hope you decide to take the plunge.
