My flight school opens back up soon from all of the COVID crap and I am gonna start my PPL. I want to fly for a living so after my PPL I would of course get all my other ratings. But my problem is I'm in the National Guard and have been asked to volunteer for a 13-14 month deployment in about 5 months. I think if I grinded before the deployment I could get my PPL. I just don't know if it is wise to get my PPL then right after not fly for a little more than a year. But I also dont want to wait till after the deployment because I know the sooner you get all your ratings and into the aviation industry the better. I just wanted some others opinions on my situation if I should try to get it before or if I should wait till after.
