not rich at all, Just did it for fun. A private license with a night rating. Was kind of depressed an wanted to feel like i accomplished something, so i went to a local flying school, got an instructor and learned how. Basically spent all my entertainment bucks per pay check on flying. at my best i was working full time at a shit job making 30 000 cnd a year, and i probably spent 12 000 on flying lessons over the course of 3 years.
to be fair though its too expensive to keep up now that i'm out of work and i've been out of currency for about 7 months because of that, If i can get a steady job maybe i'll go back.
