Hello all, I am a medically retired Iraq war vet from the lower 48 and have decided to make my childhood dreams come true(living in AK)....also I want to be a pilot... Now since the Army has/will been nice enough to pay my way through the UAA Aviation tech program Prof Pilot program I will look to make a living by flying, I don't need or expect the money right out the gate(wife would be primary bread winner for awhile) nor do I have illusions of being rich, and I have no interest in working for the majors. I have 0 Zero hrs behind the stick and will start flying in Anchorage. I am not afraid of hard work and would rather embrace it. My query would be how easy or hard would be to get hours after school is done do people hire college pilots fresh out the gate or would I have to join the Elendorf (spelling) Areo club and pay my way? Also as time goes by I look forward to buying some of you guys a beer and plundering all your useful information on flying and life in general.
Thanks to all that reply and Fly/Ride safe.
