Being a pilot

hello, i just graduated from high school and i’m wondering what i need for being a pilot. I have 0 clue about it and what’s the requirements of the grades

Jerry,

The best thing you can do is go to college, get a degree in just about anything imaginable and then go to flight school. There are literally hundreds of flight schools in the country, but very few that specialize in producing airline pilots via fast track methods. Check out ATP’s website at www.atpflightschool.com.

You will not need a degree to work for a regional airline, but you will need one for the majors.
