Am I too late to pursue an airline pilot job?
Hello, I am a 20-year old college student attending Purdue U. I am majoring in engineering but I always have wanted to become a pilot Is it too late if i start my training now? to become an airline pilot? and is it true that in the next 10 years tens of thousands of pilots are retiring and that there will be a high demand of pilots? thanks!

Its never too late. Follow your dreams! It wouldn't hurt to finish your engineering and get your pilots license on top of that.

No, not late at all, I see people start when their age reach 30 something.
