Starting to fly

I’m 14 years old right now and I’m about to enter high school. I’ve always loved flying and I have 2 questions. Is there anything I should be doing right now to become a airline pilot (Delta for example). If I go to college before flight school is there anything I should study in particular? I don’t know why this link is here by the way.

Nathan,

The best thing you can do at your age is buckle down and do well in High School so you can get into a good college. As for college study whatever you like as the airlines require degrees but are less interested in the field of study.
