Ok, Private Pilot and Instrument rating....check. Here is where I am at. I have a good career and I also enjoy flying. I can't stay in my current career forever or it will likely kill me, thought the money isn't too bad right now. Part of me would like the option to have a second career in flying sometime down the road, though not really interested in the airlines. I want to get advanced ratings either way, whether I stay where I am or look into something aviation related down the road. If I stay in my current profession, I still want to get pretty much everything but ATP. My question is, what is the best way/ most cost efficient method to end up with a commercial/multi within lets say the next year? Obviously that includes complex and high performance as well as the mutli with commerical with instrument (I assume that isn't much more than just learning to fly an approach with a dead engine). From what I gather, some of this can be combined. Any insight? I am just "kicking the tires" so to speak but would appreciate any words of wisdom.
