Mentor profile:
In Short, I started flying right out of H.S. and started Flight Instructing at age 20. Flew freight in Metro\'s for about 3 years and then went to A.E flying the ATR-42 & 72. Got on with a great Part 91 company soon after that and have never wanted another job. I have been flying corporate for the last 9 years and love it. Corporate is the LIFE!!! I fly great equipment, trips, and usually work 10-12 days a month.

Favorite thing about flying:
The freedom and the days off.
Disadvatages of being a pilot:
Time away from kids that are little.

What you would have done different:
Not worried about career so much and just enjoyed the ride and experience.
Advice to aspiring pilots:
Don\'t worry, it will eventually come! Make some great friends and never burn any bridges. Aviation is a small world.
Problems encounterd along the way:
The money going out and little money coming in.
