I'm 14 and I want to become a pilot

Hi everyone. I’m a freshman in high school just starting my second semester. Recently I’ve taken an interest in flying and I’ve decided I want to become a commercial pilot. Is there anything I can do now and in the next few years to help me achieve that? I’m not really sure what high school/college courses I should take, or what scholarships would be good to aim for. I’d just like to know what I can start doing now to make sure that I can become a pilot after I graduate.


Take a look in our FAQ section as we outline the process. As far as what you can do now, the best advice is to do well in HS and continue on into college. Airlines don’t really care what you study, only that you do well and have an education.
