Hello all. I am 35 years old and currently work in Law Enforcement. I have been thinking of making a career change as I have felt a calling to start flying. Back when I was between the ages of 19-22 I ran into some trouble. I was a kid with no direction and/or purpose in life. I literally had no idea what I wanted and had no role models or influential figure to help point me in the right direction. So, naturally I rebelled and fell in with the wrong crowd. I made poor choices and suffered the consequences. Now, for the questions and concerns. During the above stated ages, I was arrested multiple times. Most all of the charges were dismissed or I was found not guilty. I did receive convictions for a DUI, Poss or Marijuana, Public Intox. and Reckless Driving. All have been expunged from my record including the dismissed and not guilty charges except for the Reckless Driving. I completed all stipulations of the punishments, none of which included jail/prison time. All were fines, court costs and one had a year probation. I also, without being required by the courts, put myself through rehab and have been completely sober for just over five years (March 9 2014). I am able to obtain recommendation letters from my Counselor (we stay in close contact to this day and I have been invited and gone to speak at my rehab facility on multiple occasions), my Lieutenant and Sergeants as well as a couple Detectives at my Department and my Departments Director, on top of many letters from close friends and family (a few of which are Pilots at Major Airlines and a Naval Pilot). With that said what do you think my chances are of being able to obtaining a 1st class medical and being hirable at a Regional and/or Major airline? Thank you for reading and any info.
