I am thinking about taking a naval scholarship. I want to fly planes. Im pretty confident I will be selected. Is there a future for me in avation if I want to stay in the northwest (Idaho, Montana, WYoming?)

if you're flying military, you won't be staying there, but if you're refering to once you get out, there is a good chance you can find something.

not sure how the navy does it, but in the AF, flying is a 10 year service commitment AFTER your 1 year of training. keep in mind this is a LIFE CHOICE, and not just something to do on a whim

I mean once I get out.

Fly Navy. Don't look back. Think about the rest later. Pilot or not, don't ever put all your eggs in one basket.

You don't get into aviation to get rich, that's for sure.




DF has got it right. If you go to fly, pretty much the major carriers are out for a good 10-15 years or so. I'm a mechanic at the airline in my name, however on 31 March I'm getting laid off and moving to IN to chase a job up there.
