    While I feel your plight. Most won't even give to those with medical needs, let alone those who want to play in the 1% club, as the general public views the thing we call aviation. One of the many reasons GA is going...Bye-Bye. Then with all the political garbage going one. The writing is on the wall.

    Yeah, I'm so inclined to give money to someone who shows up here and his one and only made post made immediately after joining is asking for money allegedly for flying lessons (and in an inappropriate area of the forum to boot).

    My son is following in my footsteps in helicopter flight school, please send money My sarcastic comment aside, we don't know anything about the OP (because he hasn't told us anything), so if I assume he is a broke young person, I give him credit for trying this.

    Just a tad rude? But somewhat funny I suppose.

    Many of us prefer the traditional way: Get an education (free to you through grade 12, compliments of land owners and working people - you are welcome), learn a skill, dedicate yourself to doing the very best job that you can, work hard, take care of you family, set aside an appropriate amount for your kid's education and your retirement, then use what might be left to pay your own way. That system worked for many years, until the arrival of professional politicians who have sold their souls in order to stay in power by getting non-producers to vote for them.

    As Mike mentioned, join the military, they are actively seeking people. Many if not most military bases have flying clubs that offer greatly reduced rates for learning to fly. And while you're at it you might learn something worthwhile while you're there.
