I want to become a helicopter pilot. Does it matter what degree I have?
Question by coldcore: I want to become a helicopter pilot. Does it matter what degree I have?
Hi. So in the future my plan is to become a helicopter pilot as a career. Well I was just wondering I know that having a college degree will always help down the road but my problem is that there is only one school near me that offers a degree in aviation but i believe that along with that you need to pay extra for flight school for fixed winged aircraft which I do not want to fly so would be a waste of money. Would any of my employers in the future care what my degree is in? Could I even go as far as majoring in history?(I have always loved history but never wanted a job in the field) Because my plan is to work on getting a 4 year degree and my pilots license at a local helicopter flight school. Also one more question, can i get any kind of student loans to pay for the flight training? Thanks in advance
