Experience the thrill of flying and the sense of accomplishment by becoming a pilot with Aeropro in Gulf Shores.
Learning to fly is quite an accomplishment and can bring you closer toward your career goal of a career in aviation.
While it is certainly a worthwhile endeavor and the career prospects are filled with opportunity, the barrier to entry is high. Translation: It's not cheap to become a pilot and eventually earn further certification that will allow you to make money flying airplanes in the future.
One of the most common questions aspiring pilots are faced with is: "How do I pay for all this training?"
Unless you happen to be flush with cash, most of us have to rely on money we've saved up or find other sources of funding.
■ Scholarships (free money!)
■ Bank Loans (an option)
■ Credit Cards (sky high interest rates)
■ A Rich Uncle (yeah, I wish...)
An excellent "one-stop-shopping" source of scholarship information is the Aerospace Scholarships Guide.
It contains a comprehensive, current listing of aviation-related scholarship opportunities from a wide variety of sources and it's just $10 on the Aviation Careers website.
