Well, I know that you have to go to a 4-year-college to become a pilot, but I was wondering if after you go to college, do you also attend flight school and for how long? #pilot #commercial-pilot #military-pilot #airplane-pilot #helicopter-pilot

If you're going to college and you know you want to be a pilot, you should go to a school that has a flight program. There are many out schools out there including community colleges and public and private universities. You don't have to have a college degree to become a pilot but most of the major airlines won't hire you without a college degree.

Personally I attended a four year university that had a flight program all in one. There are multiple paths to becoming a pilot, one of them is to attend a university that allows you to fly at the same time you obtain your degree. Other paths include the military where a person obtains their college degree before becoming an officer. Once the person is an officer in the military they are able to go to flight school.

i am so said, thank you janani S. Translate
You're welcome. To fly for one of the commuter, or as we call them "regional" airlines, you do not require a degree, but to fly for one of the major airlines, American, Delta, United etc, if it is not explicitly required, it is highly desirable. Andrew Rowland Translate

You do not have to have a 4 year degree to be a pilot. You can obtain a pilots license from local training programs likely at your local airport. However, most airlines do prefer a degree. There are college programs specifically geared toward careers in aviation that include your ratings and offered offer a time building Oporto out through instructing. As for military, you do need a four year degree to becom an Officer. Army Warrant Officers are not required to have a degree but a some college or at least a two year degree will make you more competitive in the application process.
