Yes, I figure if flying doesn't work out I can probably go back to engineering. Although it does concern me that I won't have any recent experience if I am out of the engineering career for a few years.
I've used courses on udemy.com...cheap and effective!

Agree on recency of experience but if you absolutely hate it I'd assume you will hopefully know it in 1-2 years in which case you will probably have no issues finding another engineering job.

I too have a very supportive wife however I am sure I’ll know fairly quickly if the lifestyle will suite me well.

Also, have you looked into ATC options? FAA just had a window opened few days ago.
