Flight Instructors

Remember that if you want to work as a flight instructor, you'll have to become a pilot first. So take classes in high school that will prepare you for college. Chemistry, physics, algebra, geometry, and other advanced science and math classes are important to take. Since a career in this field demands extensive use of technology, be sure to take computer courses. To help you develop your teaching skills, take English or communications classes—these will improve your writing and speaking abilities. You may also want to take acting or drama classes as well as psychology. These classes should help you with teaching skills such as commanding an audience and learning to understand others.
