I’m currently a Junior in high school and I have hopes to one day become a airline pilot. So far I have found this forum very helpful in weighing this decision. One thing I have not yet found much information about on this forum or on much other websites is universities with majors in aviation like Purdue and Western Michigan University.
If I do go to one of those universities, I will most likely get a major that teaches me how to fly planes and gets some licenses while also getting a major in a “backup” like business or finance. My real hopes of doing this is to save time so I can hopefully start gaining flight hours right after I graduate and get started in regionals as soon as possible.
I guess what I want to know is is this a good idea? I’m aware the forum promotes the ATP training and such but just wondering if going through the university route is a good idea.
