I am looking to follow my dream of becoming a pilot, I already got my degree etc and had a job, but I more and more want to be a pilot.
How do I go about doing this?

Okay so this is a career I have looked into for a few years now and will be going into.
Firstly at your local airport or airfield there will most likely be a flying school, have a look around and see what their prices are. Look at reviews and see what you want, have a trial lesson to see if it is what you want.
Then start flying lessons, they are expensive, however they are worth the experience.
There are programs like CTC Wings and others...however with already under debt with he degree, I will highly recommend not taking this pathway due to the high expenses AKA. you have to re-mortage a house to actually take upon this pathway. (Ranging from £75,000 to £120,000)
Do not take upon another degree, professional pilots have spoken and it is not worth it.
I recommend taking up a job within an airport if possible, experience within an aviation background of an airport, will almost certainly impress airlines when it comes to getting a job, showing you have a passion for the career.
Other than that, good luck!
