Re: Any pilots in here?

Your main question being essentially, "how do I get started", the short answer is, "Just do it." In any new endeavor, the 1st step is generally the most difficult. However, once you put yourself into that endeavor, you will be pulled into the process.

Pick any airport in the Houston area (other than Hobby or Intercontinental), and there is likely a flight training operation there. Many of them offer what is called a "Discovery Flight" for a fixed fee. Usually, such flights last at least 30 minutes, but often are longer. It's partly a sight-seeing flight and partly an introduction to flying.

Go to an airport, let the person that you encounter know what you are inquiring about, talk to pilots, talk to an instructor, then schedule that 1st lesson.
Although there will be a few initial considerations to make, do not try to formulate an entire plan of action at the very beginning of that very first step.

1st consideration:
1)Take lessons from a busy, close in airport (i.e. Ellington on the south side, David Wayne Hooks on the North side)
2) Or take lessons from a smaller, quieter airport (Pearland Regional on the south, Conroe on the far north, LaPorte on the east, several to choose from on the west).

OR
Plan on the short drive from Houston up to Bryan, and I will be happy to give you an intro flight, and talk with you about the training process and some of the considerations that go into that training.
