Into Debt For The Degree

Is it worth going into debt $80,000 to be able to fly?

QUESTION: Listener asks how a 20-year-old can stay out of debt when it comes to paying $80,000 to go to school for an aviation degree.

ANSWER: Don’t spend $80,000 on an aviation degree and make $40,000 in your job. That’s ridiculous. There are other ways to get an aviation degree without debt. Go into the Air Force or try to get on with an aviation company that will pay your tuition in exchange for joining them. But don’t go into debt to do it.
