During the last 7 years I worked as Software Engineer and CTO in software development companies, main areas of interest are Computer Vision, Data Mining, Machine Learning and Image Processing, but now I got enough courage and some money to start my aviation career.
I am 29, and I have zero flight experience. My final goal is aviation job, but I understand, that there is no any guarantee in this area, everything should be done by my own risk.
Nevertheless, I am sure that I'm starting my first PPL training this year, and I'm going to continue full commercial pilot (or even airline pilot!) path from scratch.
Main question that I hear almost all the time: why? Just because I love sky, I enjoy driving any vehicle, I am always trying to improve my skills and get more knowledge, and I work hard for this, and, finally, I suppose that everybody should enjoy his life and work.
Aviation is my all-life dream, but only now I have at least some possibility. Or just enough brave and passion, enough experience to understand that nothing happens without hard work, and our possibilities mainly exist only inside us.
I am highly skilled software engineer, I am rather good CTO and manager, in general I can say that I am successful. I enjoyed my current work, but now I feel that I am ready to start this adventure and start everything from scratch. I am open to new horizon!
