I turn 50 next month, but I'm not ready to fold my hands of my chest just yet.
I just got hired at the best place that I could work in my career...but I don't want to end up there either.
We had a shop here at our local airport that restored Stearmans, Cubs...the greatest little ragwing place you've ever seen.
They moved a few years ago...but I always thought it would be a great restoring aircraft.
I am nuts about airplanes...been flying RC since 1990 and have 15 hours as a student pilot in 152's and 172's.
(Switched jobs and my wife's work isn't steady at the moment...so that is on hold)
I did call the owner of the shop and asked him how to get started in the restoration business.
He's said it's a heck of a time to get into the restoration business...in this economy...but...I should start with my A&P license.
He said it's not necessary..but it show's I'm serious to perspective employers.
Can anyone suggest a A&P school here in South Florida where I might look?
Better yet...anyone else crazy enough switch careers at 50?
Sometimes I feel crazy...but I know...doing what you love makes work enjoyable.
Something Online...GA maintence maybe?
Even though I am in to rc airplanes...I still picture myself in a hanger somewhere fixing airplanes.
