Default Repossessions of planes?

I'm currently 15, and yes I know it's dangerous, and I know that the T.V show is fake. You can't beat the wage and lifestyle! I'm currently taking pilot school, and this is my main career in mind! I just want to know what the life of a repo man is about? Do you really break in airports, I mean that dosent even sound right if you work for banks?? And how hard Is it to start your own company? I know you have to hire more pilots, etc. I'm new to the forum sorry if this is the wrong place to ask.

Ok I will bite.

If your life goal is being a repo pilot, you are going to need a lot of experience in a vast number of aircraft, tons of time, and can sell yourself to the banks.

Basically, you will need to start the path like everyone, and see where it goes. The rest is TV crap, and once you are in the industry you know what's real and fake. That's as far as I go

What Ewfflyer said + suggest you work for a repo company on the ground. It's disgusting work people try when they can't find a decent job but have to feed their families.
