Hello Ganapathi, If you want to take a degree to be pilot, you can choose the aeronautical engineering. you will get the complete technical knowledge which will help you to get into the plane. also after graduation you can apply for the government exams through with you can get in to this field. Apart from the aeronautics, you can also appear for various recruitment exams for the govt offices and departments. All the best for your future ahead. amish J.

Hi Ganapathi! While a degree in Aeronautical Engineering is awesome, you don't need it to be a commercial pilot. If your intentions are to design aircraft, or be a test pilot, it is certainly a requirement.
For a career commercial pilot (airline pilot, etc.) you will need a solid, practical understanding of physical science, math, and earth science. The professional pilot 4 year degree programs usually require physics, algebra, and trigonometry. If you are interested in pursuing a flying career in India, check and see if the airlines have a cadet program. A cadet program will include all the training necessary to go from 0 flight time to airline pilot. The best part is the airline pays for the course. You will be obligated to work for them for some time, but it's a great opportunity to gain experience. If you are interested in a 4 year professional pilot program in the U.S., there are many good ones at both large and small universities.
Best of Luck!!
