Does your son plan to fly for an airline eventually or is he looking at other opportunities? I flight instructed also many years ago. It's a great way to really learn how to fly by teaching others.

My son loves his position as the assistant chief flight instructor. He makes quite a bit of money in this position, plus he instructs to make more money. He likes the people he works with, flies/instructs most of the time, and is home every night with his beautiful bride. I think he will stay in that position until a jet job comes up that will match his pay. They also do aerial mapping at his flight school, but is not yet involved in that. He does agree that he is a much better pilot since he started teaching others and flying nearly every day. He's wanted to fly (and has) since he was 6 years old.

I am SO jealous...your timeline sounds very doable...if you and your partner can live the full-timer life.

I think you'll find that RV living is a bit more affordable that private civil aviation...I gave up the most expensive hobby I ever had and let my Private Pilot license laps. Now, I have a MH w/dolly, 2 motorcycles, a 29' Express Cruiser, and a project 4X4...much cheaper
