A little background: I am a senior software engineer with over 14 years of experience. I will turn 30 soon. I live in the UK but I'm neither a British citizen nor from EU member country. BSc in software engineering (abroad) and MSc in Advanced Computer Science (UK).
If I decide to pursue a career as a pilot, would I be eligible?
I'm not just asking this randomly, I genuinely want to know and seriously thinking of it. Aviation's been my dream for so long now I can't even remember the beginning of it. Not studying to become a pilot has been my biggest regret so far, and feels like this is one of those last moments I can do something about it. Not counting the satisfaction I can't get from my industry anymore - been doing this for some time now!
I hope this type of question is not against the rules of this community, but I don't know where else I can this. Also, if you were in my position, would you risk everything and do it?
