Some insight into making a career change into aviation:  Thaddeus and I met at Flight Safety Academy in Vero Beach, FL in 2000.  We were participating in their Fast Track program which prepared us for jobs with the regional airlines.  In May of 2001, we were hired by Atlantic Southeast Airlines (now called Express Jet).  After 6 years, Thaddeus upgraded to captain and two years later, was hired by ANA.  After 4 years at ANA, he upgraded to captain on the Boeing 767.  Not a bad career path for our buddy who didn’t even get started as a pilot until he was in his 30’s.
