Is there anyone else here that is pursuing aviation without any family members in the field?

I got my PPL recently and I want to keep going with my IFR and commercial rating but something I have noticed after meeting lots of pilots is that I have not met a single pilot that does not have a pilot in their family. I have nobody at all in my family involved with aviation and I kind of feel alone while pursing this. Of course my family supports me but they know nothing about aviation. I feel like if someone has a pilot family member or friend it can be really convenient because you have easy access to someone that is very knowledgeable and experienced. I understand that there always has to be someone to do it first and I guess I am that person but I am wondering if there is anyone else like this that has a similar or different view about it than me. I am not complaining or making an excuse about my situation at all. I am just saying that going through this journey would be nice if I had someone to talk to about what I am doing. Maybe I just need to make some pilot friends.

Advice to prospective OCS aviation candidates

A little background: I am a 21-year-old male that was selected for a student naval aviator slot, failed the flight physical during indoctrination week at OCS, and dropped on request that same day. I just got home after being in student pool for six weeks, waiting to out-process. I've had lots of time to reflect on what happened and wanted to share my story with those who are applying to OCS, especially the aviation candidates.

I won't give details on why I failed the physical because I want to protect my identity. I'll only say that my issue wasn't eye-related and that the flight surgeon discovered it accidentally during the flight physical. In my opinion, it's a minor issue that has never affected my ability to fly (already a civilian pilot), and I had no idea it would even be disqualifying. On the other hand, I can see why the flight surgeon would have a problem with it. He said that while my issue had a very low probability of getting waived for either pilot or naval flight officer, I could wait until NAMI had the last word, which in my case would've taken several months. After failing the flight physical, I felt extremely discouraged and quit OCS on the spot. I knew at that point that I didn't have the motivation or the strength to get through OCS while knowing that my childhood dream had a very slight chance of turning into reality. Fortunately, my class team was very understanding and supportive. After I met with them, I knew that my only option was to go SWO or to go home. I chose the latter. I think SWOs have one of the coolest jobs on the planet. But I had my reasons for not taking it: 1. My desire to be an officer was not strong enough to temper my disappointment/bitterness of getting disqualified from aviation. 2. I have a friend who is a SWO, and he's told me quite a bit about the lifestyle. Based on his experiences, and some research that I've done online, I know it's not for me. 3. The re-designation process doesn't happen overnight. I probably wouldn't have re-designated until receiving the final NAMI letter, and at that point, I don't think I would have any control over the ship I would get. I just didn't want to take the risk.

Regardless of the circumstances, dropping on request is a humiliating experience, and I don't wish it on my worst enemy. You will most likely sit in student pool for six weeks wearing your PT uniform and doing janitor work in the barracks. Meanwhile, you will watch your friends progress through their tra

Archer Aviation is Merging with a SPAC, But Which One?

TL:DR: Unfortunately, my research provided no convincing guess as to which SPAC it could be. Nonetheless, given that the deal could be made public as early as next week, I wanted to share what I found on Archer and possible SPAC partners in case it helps others.

Disclosure: I own 604 shares and 340 warrants of ZNTE and 457 shares of QELL.

Note: This is my first attempt at some longer DD. Any constructive criticism to improve it would be helpful.

On February 4, IPO Edge/Yahoo Finance reported that Archer Aviation would merge with a SPAC β€œin a deal that will give the company a multibillion dollar valuation, according to people familiar with the matter.” It adds: β€œThe announcement could come as early as next week, these people told IPO Edge, adding that some terms of the agreement are not final. The transaction announcement will likely include PIPE financing of at least $500 million from strategic investors, including an airline, these people said. It is not clear which SPAC intends to merge with Archer.”

First, what is Archer? Archer is an aerospace company building an all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft focused on improving mobility in cities. They compete with companies like Lillium, Joby, Airbus, Wisk, and others. Archer is designing, manufacturing, and operating a fully electric aircraft that can carry four passengers for 60 miles at speeds of up to 150mph while producing minimal noise. Currently, Archer is in the design/prototype phase with the goal of revealing the design of their aircraft in early 2021 and starting production in 2023. They ultimately hope to create their own β€œair taxi airline”.

This sounds like Nikola 2.0. Is it? Maybe? I think it’s important to draw a distinction between overhyped companies with no tangible product and overhyped companies with no tangible product and allegations of fraud. Nikola is the latter, but it remains to be seen if Archer will be too.

Has military aviation lost popularity among aspiring pilots?

I’ve been told that back in the day (especially from WWII to the 90’s) almost all civilian pilots had a military aviation background. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. Is it because flying in the military is more competitive now or is there less interest overall to be in the military? The consensus seems to be that the most skilled pilots come from the military...Curious as to what you all think.

JOBY Aviation ($RTP), Joby, a transportation company developing an all-electric, vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, intended to operate as a commercial passenger aircraft in 2024, looking to go public with SPAC company RTP, which was founded by the founders of LinkedIn, Zynga. Began in 2009, explored tech like electric motors, flight software, lithium-ion batteries. In 2012 they were selected to collaborate with NASA on electric flight projects, including the X-57 and LEAPTech. They created their prototype in 2015, and by 2017 they created their first full scale prototype, in 2019 they created their first production prototype, over 1,000 test flights, on track to certify the aircraft for commercial operations in 2024. In 2020 the US Air Force granted its first ever eVTOL airworthiness certification to Joby. (Looking to go public via SPAC merger, RTP)

The eVTOL is powered by six electric motors, their take off and lands vertically, which gives flexibility for functionality anywhere. These vehicles have speeds up to 200mph, with a 150 mile range, producing zero co2 emissions and holds five people; one pilot, and four passengers.

In 2021: Under the terms of this week’s deal, Joby Aviation will acquire Uber Elevate, while the two parent companies have agreed to integrate their respective services into each other’s apps, enabling seamless integration between ground and air travel for future customers. The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close in early Q1 2021, subject to regulatory review and customary closing conditions Uber’s new $75M investment brings its all-time total investment in Joby to $125 million and Joby Aviation’s total funding, including previous rounds, to $820 million.

Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO, Uber: *β€œAdvanced air mobility has the potential to be exponentially positive for the environment and future generations. β€œThis deal allows us to deepen our partnership with Joby, the clear leader in this field, to accelerate the path to market for these technologies. β€œWe’re excited for
