Real Answers from Real Pilots

Universities in California

I just got into college, however I’m still insecure what to major in and what will be the most suitable university to attend in the future given that my ultimate goal is to become an airline pilot. What would you recommend to do?. Also I’m an international student looking forward to a residence in the U.S.A in the future.


The airlines want a 4yr degree but they’re really not concerned in the field of study. I often recommend studying something other than aviation you have an interest in. It’s always good to have a backup plan or even something you might want to do later in life when you’ve gained seniority at an airline and have 20 days off a month. Study what you like.
