I really lost


Many pilots don’t come from wealthy families. I recommend you take a look at our FAQ section as to the process then come back with specific questions.



I like your plan of two years of community college, then finish at a full college. Take a few minutes to read the FAQ section as many of your questions will be answered there. After that, we would be happy to help.

I can tell you that community college is the way to go. I went to two year of school for around $10,000, while my friends I graduated high school with were paying anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 PER YEAR.

If you are talking about a 4 year aviation university that is a discussion itself.
