    Daddy has to be a billionaire?  It is still a "Maybe"  Or fly for the drug cartel? Remember, it is not like driving a farm tractor.

    Simply not going to happen.

    Going to college is an indication of intelligence and capacity to learn. THAT'S what the airlines are looking for rather than a specific degree or qualification. Without going to college the airline recruiters will assume you're an uneducated fool and won't even look at you.

    Source(s): I got a good job because I had a degree. My degree was entirely unrelated to the job, but they wanted educated people.

    If you want to fly for a major airline in the USA there isn't one. Without a college degree you won't be competitive with the 99% of applicants who have one, so it will take you a lot longer and you may never succeed in flying for a major airline.

    A couple of years ago Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine in a feature article on how airlines cope with pilot shortage reported that SkyWest Airlines, a large regional carrier headquartered in St. George, Utah, hired 37 pilots during the previous year.  Only one didn't have a college degree.  Do you like those odds?
