What course should I take to become a pilot?

Last Updated on 01/28/2020 by FilipiKnow

You can take up any course in college and still become a pilot. No need to take up an aviation-related degree in order to be qualified to learn how to fly any form of aircraft or become an airline pilot.

Whether you’re enrolling in an aviation college or applying for a cadet pilot program, you can do so regardless of your college major. You’ll get to learn everything you need to know about flying once you’re in anyway.

There are some people in the industry who believe that aeronautics and engineering graduates have some kind of edge over graduates with unrelated degrees. But remember, you’ll be flying an airplane, not fixing one.

Meanwhile, for practical reasons, some believe that it can actually be good to pursue a different major during college and then go to an aviation school after. This way, you’ll get to have some kind of a fallback in case becoming a pilot won’t work out for you.
