Math was never a huge strong point of mine. I got through successfully only because I had good math tutors to help guide me along the way. My mom constantly doubts my ability to become a Pilot because of the sophisticated math skills the career requires. I keep trying to tell her, it only requires basic maths skills, good judgment and good navigation skills; that you don’t have to be a Math genius to do this.

What’s the real story behind Math and Aviation? Do I need to have taken high level advanced math classes like Calculous and Physics to succeed in this career? (The highest math classes I’ve taken are Algebra 3 & Statistics and I barely survived them)
