Im currently looking for a new watch. I was looking for an aviation style watch but have a price point of 500-1000. Does anyone have any opinions about which watch is best??

Carbon Monoxide

Ive always been a little concerned after catching my first glimpse of an aircraft heating system. Has anyone ever had issues with exhaust cracks causing carbon monoxide in the cabin? What happened? Im kind of curious because carbon monoxide is a undectable gas using human senses.

Re: Should I...

I agree with Hedley, bridges should never been burned. I am in the same situation, slowly completing my flight training while not incurring any debt. I personally would never incur debt on flight training.
But good luck on the choice you make.
