Hey everyone, my name is Gabby and I’m 16 years old. My whole life I never really knew exactly what it was I wanted to do for a career. One day I was reading a book that was talking about pilots and flying and all that jazz, and the idea of being up in the sky would NOT leave my mind. I started researching how to become a pilot and what the life of one entailed, and ever since I’ve been hooked.
I’ve attended meetings at local airports and “put my foot in the door” of the aviation community, so to speak. My question to you guys is, when starting training as a pilot(with the major US carriers as a goal), is it smarter to get a degree in a non-aviation related subject and attend a flight school like ATP or PEA afterwards… or go to a school such as UND or WMU and get a 4 year degree while getting my licenses and ratings?
I know there’s a huge cost difference between the two, but do airlines REALLY not care about where you went to school and what you majored in?
Thanks a ton!!
