College Curiosity

Hello,
So I’m very interested in aviation and I want to make it into a career of course. I am currently 19 years old so I am aware that I have some time. I went to a junior college on a sports scholarship, but unfortunately my grades flawed my second semester. My main concern is… will this affect my future at a major airline in the future? Also, I do plan to return to school and focus more on college while flying on the side.

Thanks,

Brett

Brett,

I can’t say for certain, but I believe that most major airlines will want to see a minimum GPA of at least 3.0, so if your grades are not up to there make sure that you do well moving forward.
