    No doubt in my mind , you should continue training as a pilot . Don't take me wrong , you really are an handsome bloke , but bloody oath , show business can kill you !!

    How about continue training as a pilot, then pursue acting so you'll have something to fall back on?

    Heyy thanks guys... But you see I can't make a decision.. I'm in to dramatics and very good at it you know and at the same time I belong from a military family, my grand dad was in the air force... Well can't join the ari force but a commercial pilot... I appreciate all your advice to make a decision..

    I totally agree with this, follow your heart.

    To the OP, I relate to your post because my 2 greatest interests were aviation and acting. I decided to go the airline route in my early 20s but after 25 years in that business I have been thinking alot lately of how differently things might be now if I had gone the acting route . 8 years ago I started taking acting classes, eventually got professonal headshots done and do acting on the side from my day job. But if I could act full time and make a living from it, I would do it in a heartbeat!

    A pilot's license on the CV attached to the back of your headshot will surely open more doors.

    Oh for God's sake. This is ridiculous - forget every single bit of Montessori-inspired, hippie bullshit about following your passion/Zen/calling/love/what-the-hell-ever.

    The pilot's license, FTW. Do you like eating? Have you become fond of washing your clothes? Well then you, my friend, are a fan of money. And guess where you won't be making money? That's right. Acting.

    Or as I like to call it, working at a coffee shop in Los Angeles.

    Dilemma solved. Next question!

    Do both. As an aspiring actor myself without a stable fall back career, it helps to have a job that pays well and still allows you to pursue acting. Pilots aren't allowed to work a lot of hours, so I imagine you could probably fit acting in.

    And think of the advantage of flying yourself back and forth between LA and NY!

    Yes do it! You're young and do what makes you happy. "Whatever you believe and conceive you can achieve". Go! Go! Pursue your acting as well. You only live once and enjoy!!icon_biggrin.gif

    What ever happened to the days when we all acted like good pilots, milk men, and paperboys?
