Default confused.....

I thought about becoming a pilot since I was in 6th grade. But now after reading all these threads.... i don't know if i really want to become a pilot.
so.... according to what the other people said ERAU, florida tech and all the other aviation schools cost too much and they don't really help....
Then... what's the best way to become an airline pilot with not spending a lot of money???
i'm really confused....
any help will be really appreciated
please feel free to send me any emails if you have any advise for me

I would say if you have to ask then this career is the wrong career... If you haven't flown already, take an intro flight and then you will know if this is what you want to do.

Start your interest in aviation by taking a discovery flight and maybe schedule a couple of lessons with a local CFI out of a FBO. You may not like flying in the real world versus what you've dreamed up in your mind as to what flying is. So get that reality check first.

If you want to make a living out of aviation, do a lot of research before you plunge in. It's not what it used to be, and the industry is full of pot holes. As for the money part, if you want to fly, you're going to be spending money. It's as simple as that. And money you will spend! Lots and lots of it...
