Real Answers from Real Pilots

My dream job, where to start?

I’ve always been in love with aviation and really want to become a pilot. I was wondering where do I start? Do I need a 4 year degree? I heard some people you need a bachelors. I’m currently a pre-nursing major but I realize that’s not my real passion. Do I just apply for financial aid and wait?

Yes, I read the info on ATP but I’m still lost. How exactly when/how do I start the process?


To be successful in aviation at some point you’ll need a 4yr degree. Please visit our FAQ section and ATPs website for the process.


Ok thanks, I’ll just finish college then start my journey to become a pilot, Thanks, now I have a goal :slight_smile:

I would agree with finishing college first. Please check out the FAQ section that Adam mentioned as there is a ton of great information there.
