I am a flight instructor and fly for the airlines on the side . There is still some time before you can solo in an aircraft, (16 years old) but that doesnt mean you cant start your lessons just yet. I have had students as young as 8 years old!

As young as eight? Seems a bit pointless, you'd think they'd get bored waiting to be able to go solo.

How do they perform relative to the average student?

Keep at it. If you grow frustrated, take a break but not a long one. Flying at your age should be a hobby and for fun. This doesn't mean you don't take it seriously. Just know you're in it for the long haul.

No matter what, don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't reach your ultimate goal.

If you can, try to all your flying consistantly. It is better to go everyday for a month then take your check ride then to do one flight a week. In the long run your learning and flying proficiency will be much better that way. Which means you will learn faster (retain more) and it will cost you much less. When I say it will cost you less, I mean that you won't be paying money relearning skills that you have forgotten since your last flight.
Study, Study,Study, lot to learn as an pilot. Get into those books and learn those FAA rules, aerodynamics and weather and everything you can about your aircraft.

And if all else fails, there is always the Army flight program. I am not a recruiter. I just need somebody to join so that they will let me retire.

If it's a volunteer Army........Why can't I quit????? Who volunteered me to stay?????

Why do they seperate soldiers from the Army with less than 20 years in for "lack of performance" then ask them to come back a year later?

Why do they let soldiers retire today that are still in shape and trained and at the same time will recall a soldier that has been retired for 6 years to send them to war?

Why does the Army boot soldiers out that are passed over for promotion as a Warrant but lets them go to OCS and return as a LT?

Sorry Bladeoforder, didn't mean to steal your thread, had to vent a minute but I am over it now

I am a commercial Helicopter pilot and I am working on the CFI rating right now. My advice is to study hard and do not let yourself slack off. Study at least an hour a day, everyday, even after you receive your
certificate(s) so that way you will always retain the knowledge and everything will always be fresh in your mind. I do not have any fixed-wing ratings but may get the private-addon later. Go to www.verticalreference.com if you have any further questions as this site has a section dealing with flight training, but it mainly is a site for the helicopter pilots new and old alike. Lots of the regulars on this site do hold both rotory-wing and fixed-wing license, so they may be of some help to you. I hope this helps. Look in my gallery and you will see what I fly and the yellow H500 that I hope to fly someday. Good luck on you flying experience.
