Transferring Colleges

Hello pilots,

I am a female junior in high school who is going to be graduating early and I am very interested in becoming an airline pilot. Right now I’m interested in attending a community college for two years and then attending a university. Will this affect airlines interest in hiring me when the time comes?

Thanks!

Angelina,

Not in the least. Ultimately you’ll want to progress to a Major airline and they require a 4 yr degree from an accredited university. Where you start or how you earned your credits are of no interest. Short answer that’s fine.

Angelina,

I think this is a great way to save money and will not make one bit of difference in your airline career. I say stick with this plan.
