At 25 years old i've decided its time for a career change! At present i'm currently working as a System Administrator for a well known broadcasting company. I've always wanted to become a commercial pilot and I finally decided to take the plunge.

Blake details his experiences while becoming a commercial pilot in his blog.
As for me, I'm at 0 days since beginning, $53.00 for a flight, $1 for a training manual I picked up at a garage sale, .6 hours flown, and 2 blog entries... only $21,395.40 to go....
I found out that taking off and flying a plane is actually fairly straightforward. It's landing that's the hard part.
