I quit highschool in 1956 at the age of 17 and entered the Marine Corp. I went on to become an airline Captain at the age of 31 and finally retired in 1998 as a 747 Captain. If you have the desire and the ability to persevere go for it. [Side note, you also have to have the brains to do it. It aint easy].

A friend of mine, his young bloke got his flying licence on his 15th birthday, he's now studying up (and saving for the lessons) for a twin or multi engine licence. He has not got his drivers licence yet though.

He's still going through the last year at high school, and he wants to join the RAAF and hopes to through uni that way.

He said that he will anything the airforce lets him, from transports to whatever modern jet marvel, the Oz government buys from the US.
