Hi everyone, I have really wanted to get my private pilots license for a long time for a couple of reasons, first I think it might improve my chances of getting into USAFA in the future and second I really like flying and have always wanted to pilot. My main concern is that my parents won't let me because they'll think it's too dangerous or something like that. Distance isn't much of an issue as I live about 10 min from an airport nor is money because I have a lot saved. Any ideas on how I could convince them to let me? Facts and statistics would be nice if you've got any. Thanks.
