It is really cool that you are looking into becoming a pilot! Pilots can come from any variety of backgrounds because the training you receive is thorough and specialized. Math and engineering courses may help, but are not necessary. The most important thing you can do in high school to make pilot training easier is to develop good study habits, whatever the class is. In college, your university may offer several majors related to aviation. It is best to speak with your counselor to determine which major is best for you

I have been flying in the military for 7 years and I took general electives in high school, and studied business in college. I did not have any trouble, at least not more than the average student, in pilot training. In fact, I have not noticed any correlation between the level of skill in a pilot and the subject of their college background. Some engineers had in-depth knowledge on specific aspects (e.g., aeronautics, electrical, etc) of being a pilot, but did not necessarily increase their general piloting skill.

Hello Ben, i think you need to start with the private pilot course. You must take teorical lesson related with aerodinamic, meteorology, mechanics and other issues. Then you will take practical lessons. In some countries you need to take like 40 hours to obtain de private pilot license. This first step aloud you to fly visual, always with earth or water view. Then you can move along to instrumental pilot habilities. Its really a amazing experience. If you want to be a comercial pilot you must have to acumulate hours and take the course for that.
Its really and amazing experience. Im a private pilot, and right know i fly Ultra Light Motor (ULM) plains.
