AirPacific747 wrote:Well lucky you for losing your aviation interest so early on. You should be happy! At least it'll hopefully steer you away from becoming a pilot which is a lousy job these days and has been for around two decades now. Miserable lifestyle is to blame. Little time home with your family and the pay doesn't compensate for that in any way. The airlines are thriving on idiots who are willing to give up everything to fly an aircraft and the only way it can change is by having a genuine massive pilot shortage for many years.

OK well enjoy flight training while it lasts. It's the best and most interesting flying you'll do in your career. After that, flying soon just becomes a job.

I flew a Cessna, went on multiple trips but it's just not the same anymore. It feels boring. Should I give up and accept that I have lost it since it happened over a year ago?
I just wanted to become a pilot one day but it seems like it won't work out. I always looked up at the sky, now I look down at the ground.

ConcourseB wrote:Yeah but why did I lose interest in something like aviation? Like if people see me, they will immediately think "planeguy" since aviation was so close to me. I have tried to rebuild my enthusiasm multiple times but it vanished again after 1-2 days. What made you guys like aviation?

I signed up to submit photographs, but after many rejections, stopped clicking altogether (did not know about other sites back then), since I do not have the time nor the resources to get the million quid cameras that one needs to get pictures through the screening process.
But hell, I am a techno-phobic geezer. Don't listen to me. I still come here for the fora discussions and to, of course, look at the pictures others have posted. Not a bad experience, I would say.
