Missing the boat?

Hello!
I’m currently 31, married, just had a kiddo, and living in Florida. I have thought about going to flight school for years, but with the previously very low entry-level pay at the regionals, I was always nervous. I know that there is a payoff later in the career, but I had a business that I was pretty comfortable with right after high school. I did go on to get my EMT-Paramedic License, and also have a 4-year degree.

I feel that at this point in my life it would be advantageous to finally go for it. It seems that getting hired would be much more favorable at this time, than in years past.

I guess my question really is in the 18-24 months that it would take to work towards getting my licenses and building my time, would I be missing the boat on an opportunity to get hired potentially with a regional, and eventually work my way or flow into a major?

I’m fortunate that my wife is a nurse and I have a decent income from my current business that would allow me to have the flexibility to work towards this goal full-time. Flying is without a question a passion, but I also want to make sure I put myself into a good position to support my family.

Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated!
