I am a CDL driver and a pilot. I drove household making 150k a year, freedom of when I want to go home, took winters off and enjoyed sightseeing whenever I felt like it. I am also a pilot. I would love to fly for a living and somewhat do now with low level pipeline work making 45k a year. Huge difference in pay. I am getting back into trucking for many reasons but here is my thing, with flying I work and fly for a company and can never fly on my own. Could never afford to. With trucking, I can afford to buy, I own a Cessna 150, and can fly anywhere, anytime I want. With trucking I have the best of both worlds. The income to make a good living and the income to be a lifetime GA pilot. From my experience, Just my 2 cents.
