I’m new to the chat boards here and have been reading a lot about if a Bachelor degree is actually necessary for employment by the major airlines. As expected, a degree is heavily weighted and while “not required” will definitely make a difference during the hiring process. I recently left my job of 18 years and am looking to complete the 7-month program here at ATP. After I complete, I plan to complete a college degree online while working to get the required hours to make it to the regional airlines. I will still be needing to continue working on my degree at that point. Which brings me to my question.
Is it possible to complete a degree while working as a pilot? I definitely think it will have its challenges. Has anyone done this and been successful?
