Hello! I am currently a senior in high school. I am also part of the Running Start Program at my local college which is similar to dual enrollment in many other colleges and universities.
By the end of this year, I will graduate with my high school diploma and Associates in Arts & Sciences with an Academic Concentration in Sociology. My plan is to attend the University of Washington and major in Global/International Studies within 2 years since my AA credits will transfer. I then want to pursue flight school.
I have constantly been looking at colleges that offer Aviation programs- specifically Central WA university. However, after much research, I have found that it is better to major in something other than Aviation so I can have something to fall back on. Therefore, I thought Global Studies would be perfect since I love to travel.
Do you think this is an efficient plan?I also have various questions about funding for my training. I do not think I will be able to afford flight training as it is quite expensive. I may also have to fully fund my own education for my last 2 years for the undergraduate degree. What is the best possible way to pay for training? Would it be possible to work part-time and be at ATP Flight School?
