I just said in conversation:

Je me suis envolé vers la Suède dès que j’en ai eu l’âge, les moyens et le cran.

I used the pronoun "en" to express the idea of "to do so" in "once I had (noun) to do so", but I wonder if this is how French speakers would commonly express this idea.

Some other suggestion?

Yes, that is a typical way to express this idea.

Another suggestion:

...aussitôt que j'en ai eu l'âge, les moyens et le cran.
