Great advice, Rowdy!
If you don't mind my curiousity, what kept you from earning $0.5M annually as a heavy-iron pilot? Was the alure of being an electrician greater than your love to fly?
I'm sure after pulling g's as a jock, the heavies would be quite boring, so I understand your reluctance!
I prefer bush flying and don't have much attraction to jets. Keep the prop up front, the wing on top, and the tail (and the stall speed) down low for me!
