Hello, my name is Nick and I’m a senior in highschool. I’ve decided that flying is what I want to do with my life but have a few things I really want to know before hand so I know before going to a couple of the colleges I’m interviewing with if they are who I want to give my mo hey too. Let’s start with Spartan collage… I think what they offer is too good to be true which means that it probably is that way. They say that I can have my bachelors and a Commercial license in 33 months (let’s say 4 years just to give wiggle room on my end or the schools). And let’s also say that it all goes swell and I and up getting everything needed and my bachelors as well. Will major airlines recognize that as a bachelor’s degree since it’s not a 4 year college? ( for those who don’t know Spartan, it’s a lot alike embry riddle).
Next question is after all that schooling is down (again assuming everything is true and I get all my certificates and degree) is my best option working at a airline like envoy for a couple years and then trying to move up to American airlines. And if so how do I go about doing that, or how do I even know when it’s time for me to at least try to work my way up to the majors?
I’m sorry if this gets confuesing or clusted, I’m just really excited and really nervous. It’s a $100,000 investment to go to a school like this and I just want to make sure I stay ahead of the game with the schooling and looking for a pilot job to start my career. Thank you in advance
