Funny that the pilot's license should come up so quickly. I'm a professional flight instructor, and I really want to solo a jet fighter / trainer.

Not an airliner - I could do that with just a little luck if I landed the right job, and be paid for it. I want to fly something like an L-39, MiG 15, F-86 or T-33, solo as as pilot-in-command. Although I've never been in the military, I have on a few occasions flown some of the "warbirds" that I covet, but always with an instructor. Actually getting rated in one and finding myself in a position in which I could solo it would take a truly obscene amount of money.
