It's more or less easy to fly powered....You have the option to add power unless the engine is out....and engines going out isn't THAT common.

Gliders- You are going down no matter what you do...

Okay but advice for you from what I've learned...

-Study for the knowledge test.
-Commit.
-Get ready to spend 6-8K for the license. Yes it's that expensive. No you probably can't do it cheaper.
-Don't be stubborn (It's not like driving a car and the person in the right seat knows more than you no matter what you think)
-Get ready to have a shit ton of fun!!!

Oh and when I tell a girl I'm a pilot... yea that works wonders for ya

If that's the case- Don't spend too much money on flight lessons/plane rentals now.

I didn't have any hours before I started and I'm doing just fine-

Spend your money on other fun stuff and make sure you are doing well in school and involved in your community...That'll get you in OCS or the Academy and into a flight spot pretty easily...and then it's just studying and flying!!

Going to Ithaca College in upstate NY in about a month. Then doing OCS, getting my time on a ship out of the way, learn to fly helos.
