My name is David Scott Aronstam, and this fund is my plea to the universe for help out of my current financial troubles. I went to school to follow my dreams and become a commercial pilot. Which is a very costly venture, and while I currently hold my commercial flight ratings, due to the economy and new government regulations I am unable to get a job flying. I have been waiting tables for a few years now, and been out of school for almost 2 years.
I owe over 100,000 dollars to the bank for student loans and am making payments of about 1000 dollars a month just for that one loan. The income I make from waiting tables as well as any other work I pick up is not enough to cover the cost of living and my loans. This financial hole that my schooling has put me in has left me unable to fly in over a year, and I have not been able to further my experience or my career.
I have decided that enough is enough and I MUST do something to get my life of flight going. I pursued a small loan in order to get my Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) ratings, as being a flight instructor has become a must in the aviation industry in order to gain the necessary experience to fly for a larger airline or corporation. However, because of my incredibly high debt to income ratio, and the fact that I do not even have enough money to pay my bills, it was as expected, declined.
I need to find some way to afford my CFI in order to both be able to start my career, as well as to acquire a job instructing so that I can begin to support myself.
So this is me, down on my knees, asking the universe for help not just to see my dreams come true, but to survive.
Absolutely anything helps, and I am truly grateful in advance for all of your help. This fund is for my training, and anything left over will be applied to my payments on my loans from school.
Thank you for your help getting on my feet,
