Well start by taking an Introductory Flight at your local flight school. You can find a list of flight schools here: http://www.flightschoollist.com
If you decide that you like flying then start your flight training. You can start flying at any age, you just cant get your Private Pilot Certificate until you turn 17 years old. Start reading up on the Private Pilot Certificate. If you can, start your flying lessons. Start off with flying once a month. When you get closer to 17 then start flying once a week until you get your Private Pilot Certificate. I started when I was 14 years old. I would fly once a month until I was 16. Then I started to fly once a week until I got closer to taking my test. A month before my test I would fly about 3 times a week. Good Luck
First off, college. Not all airlines require a degree. Several of the "regional" airlines don't require a degree. However, most of the "majors" do. So where do you want to end up? Charter flying and other corporate flying has a policy on a per-company basis. But if you have it, it may put you ahead of someone who doesn't.
Air Force. You'll be committed to them for no less than 10 years. Are you prepared to devote that time? Not to mention you'll be IN the military and may have to deploy, fight, and possibly pay the ultimate sacrifice. It may be for you, it may not.
If you do choose college, then the question is do you chose an "aviation university" or not. Aviation Universities include Embry Riddle, Auburn University, along with many more. OR, you can choose to attend an "airline academy" which will be independent of a 4 year degree but will have you ready from start to ready for an airline interview in XX number of days/months. These include Delta Connection Academy
Anyway, to be competitive for a regional airline right now you will ultimately need (in terms of flight experience) your Commercial Multi Airplane license with an Instrument rating at probably AT LEAST 800 hours of flight time of which at least 100 hours should be in a multi-engine airplane.
If you go to one of the academy's be prepared to spend around $25,000 up front (or within a few months) to get that commercial multi.... Other wise, if you obtain the licenses/ratings as you go the following will become familiar terms to you:
-- Private Pilot License
-- Instrument Rating
-- Commercial License
-- Multi-Engine license/add-on
-- Certified Flight Instructor (CFI)
-- Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII)
-- Advanced Ground Instructor (AGI)
-- Multi-Engine Flight Instructor (MEI)
I would also recommend www.aopa.org to investigate learning to fly. If you do go to a local flight school, I recommend something called a "Discovery Flight."
The list goes on. If you want to ask specific questions, feel free to send me an email.
before you invest in a lot of time go to your local flight school and pay for a 50 intro flight lesson which would probably be 1/2 an hour to 45 minutes. During that flight, ask your self if you could actually fly airplanes for a living, sitting in the noisy cockpit for hours at a time.
also do what the 1st person said and buy a flight simulator, you can take the lessons that they have on there.
well start learning planes. i would suggest getting a plane simulator and learn some. think and see if you actually would like a job. learn about planes.
