Commercial pilots career

So right now i’m a junior in high school. i’m really interested to become a commercial pilot. The first question i want to ask is how much money do i need to have to become a commercial pilot? the second question is after i graduate from high school what degree should i choose in college and university?

thank you


Please take a look at the FAQ section as both of those questions are addressed either there, or on ATP’s main website.



As Chris said, tons of great info on the subject and the process in the FAQ section so please visit.

Short answers all your training will cost approx $80-100k which most people take loans for. As for degrees study what you like and can excel in. The Majors what a degree but really don’t care what it’s in.
