3. Commercial Pilot
Can you actually fly a plane without a degree? Absolutely! People do it all the time. Can you actually get a job doing it, though? Yes, you can.
In the military, officers are always the ones flying the aircraft, and all officers have to possess at least a bachelor’s degree. So one may be forgiven for assuming a degree is required to fly a plane. But it’s not!
You do need at least 250 hours of logged flight time as a private pilot before taking the Federal Aviation Administration’s licensing exam, plus certification and 1,500 hours of total flight hours to become a commercial pilot. Once you’ve got those, you’re ready for takeoff!
