Can I become a pilot without a degree?

Last Updated on 01/28/2020 by FilipiKnow

Yes, you can become a pilot even without a college degree. In fact, most flight schools accept students as young as 16 years old since it’s the minimum age requirement to get a Student Pilot License (SPL).

If you’re satisfied with getting just a Private Pilot License (PPL) or a Commercial Pilot License (CPL), then you don’t need a degree in order to be a pilot.

However, if you want to become an airline pilot, then you need to obtain a bachelor’s degree in any field. A degree is one of the requirements of the best airlines in the country since it’s a great indicator that you’re mature and experienced enough to handle all the stress, responsibility, and complexities of flying a commercial flight.
