I have recently (within the past few months) decided that I am no longer going to pursue a career as an airline pilot. It's been a tough decision, but I would rather be home with my family on a daily basis than fly jets. Plus, I would have to significantly decrease my family's standard of living for a decade before we were back up to where we are now.
I am definitely not giving up flying, though. It's like an inoperable brain tumor-impossible to be extracted from my life. I will continue to work part time as a CFI. Eventually I will feel compelled to buy my own airplane. I am also very interested in becoming a glider pilot, maybe even a glider CFI. About a month ago I paid a visit to Morgan Valley Soaring where the owner expressed an interest in me becoming a CFIG so he could get out of the back seat of their old, uncomfortable Schweizer 2-33. It sounds like fun to me.
