What degree should I get?

Hi all,
My name is Kevin I’m 16 and a junior in high school, I have always been fascinated with aviation ever since I was little and have always wanted to become a commercial airline pilot. I was wondering what type of bachelors degree major airlines preferred, or if you can get any bachelors degree (not related to aviation). Also Is it a good idea to get your flight training done at a local flight school then to go on to college? Thanks for your help!

Kevin,

Here’s a link to the FAQ section: https://www.airlinepilot.life/c/frequently-asked-questions/19 We cover the degree question and the order in which you should complete things there and on many other threads already on this forum.
