May one assume that you are of the younger generation , QM ?
Salary and spending power are two completely different things .
Most folk when beginning their journey in life don't have too much much to spare , income wise . It is only once you are getting into the 'middle-age' category when things start to look up . i.e. Mortgage not such a burden , kids leaving home ,,,[
] ,,and the possibility of being a bit more 'career established' .
It would be interesting to know how many younger PPLs are stretching themselves financially and hoping for a foothold in the airline industry , or perhaps financed by the 'Bank of Mum & Dad' .
Also , it has to be acknowledged that once you get to a certain time of life , there may be the chance of a bit of inherited cash helping to finance our favourite pastime .
There are probably quite a few super whizz-bangs up there , ripping those molecules apart that are only there thanks to old Auntie Mabel dropping off her perch .
If you have a newly acquired PPL , or are toying with the idea , then keep at it . I have known several younger guys who , over the years have scraped to get their licences , scraped to keep the minimal currency level , only to start enjoying it properly a few years later .
Unfortunate fact : Once you've got all the things in life that 'impress the birds' , you're too decrepit to do anything about it ....
Ask me how I know....
