Question by : What is the best possible civilian employment shortcut to get a pilots license and build flight time?
I was thinking of trying to get a technology job or support position with a smaller cargo or aviation company that could help me become a pilot by allowing me to build flight hours. I would guess many of the pilots that work for these companies are certified flight instructors anyway. This way I could potentially have a job and get some help on the pilot licensing side. Any suggests or ideas?
My home state is Florida and I can also apply in the New York area.

So you want to work in the office and then get the guys that did it the hard way to train you so you can move into their jobs one day. Right….
Get a job. Save the money, learn to fly. When you have time and ratings, apply; looking for a place that will let you fly, not learn, fly as part-time crew. Be prepared to change jobs until you find one that fits.
