Im doing the whole career change pilot thing right now. Im a bit older, hitting 40 soon, but as many have mentioned get your ppl first.

Management consulting if it's a steady 3 to 4 month assignment, I'd ask my boss if I could take fridays off for travel to and from (I have a few management consultant friends that fo this regularly), and take lessons on the weekend. Its only 50 flight hours for your ppl, mostly academics really. Get your PPL first and decide if you're really doing this all the way or not, i.e. is this a hobby or a career?

After your PPL if you want to go full time buy a plane to get you through instrument and commercial.

Good luck, find your bliss man.
