1.I’m only 18 years old looking to become (the first in my family) commercial pilot eventually down the road because I have recently had high interest in flying. I have read thousands of post and hundreds of videos talking about the profession the good and the bad etc. One question I never got an answer for was: Can I get my bachelors degree AFTER going to flight school and obtaining my commercial pilots license?
- I understand that it is almost a requirement from big airlines I.e delta, southwest etc. to be considered for a job - you must have a bachelors degree. Is this correct?
3 Also, to my understanding this degree can be in anything you desire?
Addition to original post:
4. Will regional airlines hire brand new commercial pilots right out of flight school?
5. I know majors must have 1500hrs minimum… will you actually get hired with 1500hrs or is it more like 2000-2500?
Thank you guys & I look forward to your response.
