I am currently getting a Bachelor’s Degree in engineering. However, I want to go to flight school after I graduate with the goal of being a pilot. I have one summer left before I graduate. Last summer, I had a technical engineering internship and did not really enjoy it. Next summer, I was thinking of working at an FBO.
My question is, would working at an FBO instead of a technical engineering internship (non-aviation) negatively impact my resume? My thinking is that it does not really matter, or it might help my resume, since it would be working in aviation. Do airlines look hard at past internships? Or would the technical experience make me more attractive to the airlines?
