I am planning on becoming a pilot i am currently 16 years old and will be graduating next year at 17 i will try to go to misr flying college in egypt but i cant decide whether i should really choose to become a pilot dont get me wrong i love aviation but dont know whether i should get another degree in another topic or just become a pilot.
Dude, getting a degree as a stand-by factor makes sense, as a contingency plan if things go wrong and you cannot fly.
If you are not mega-rich though, you will be shelling out until you earn a substantial amount of money as a commercial pilot.
Meantime, you can borrow it train with it and then earn with it. If you really want to fly so bad - then nothing will stand in your way. And, if you give it Sustained Time and sustained commitment then you will have virtually no competition.
Once you are high and fast with a substantial airline or a major you won`t have to worry about the price of life insurance, you will be too busy worrying about the new car your wife wants and the rest.
