Do I need a bachelor degree to become a airline captain or can I work my way up form a first officer without a degree.
You don’t need a degree to become an airline Capt. Upgrade is a factor of seniority and successfully completing training.
Problem is you do need a degree to get hired at a Major airline. So if you want to be a Capt at a Regional you’re fine without BUT if you’d like to do any flying in any seat at a Major you will need a degree.
