There are a number of classes you can take in high school to
help prepare you for becoming a pilot. You should take science
classes, such as chemistry and physics, as well as mathematics,
such as algebra and geometry. Take computer science classes, as
solid computer skills are a vital requirement for being a pilot.
Since you will be responsible for the maintenance and care of a
plane, you may also benefit from taking an electronics shop class
or other shop class where you get to work on engines. Take English
classes to improve your research and writing skills. Throughout
your career you will need to study flying or repair manuals, file
reports, and communicate with customers. Since you may be
responsible for record keeping, take business or accounting
classes. If your school offers agriculture classes, take any that
will teach you about soils, crops, and growing methods.
