Hi guys. Ever since I was young I've wanted to be a pilot and a firefighter. In high school and after, the opprotunity came for me to pick the pilot route and right now I'm 23 and working as a flight instructor helicopter pilot. Now, one of our students is a local fireman and is at the tail end of his training to be a flight instructor. I was talking to him about my interest in becoming a fireman and he told me that the local fire depts in the area would have a huge need in the coming year and told me to give it a shot to do both. Now the question is, how many of you hold a second career or job in your spare time. As a flight instructor I've spent a considerable amount of money on training and just at the beginning of my career. On the other hand,becoming a firefighter and working for a municipality and having a career in public service,security, and benefits and working as a pilot on the spare time. What do you guys think?
