I'm interested in becoming an airline pilot, but I am unsure of which is the best route to take. I have considered the military, but I'm not to keen on that. I'm wondering if it is better to do my training at a local airport, and then get a colloge or university degree in a non-aviation related course (like business), or if I should go into an aviation program at a college or university that gives you your flight training as well as a degree in aviation. My goal is to work for the airlines, so what would an airline prefer, aviaiton courses or non aviation courses. I can see how both have their pros and cons. Having aviation courses shows that you are very well trained and know the industry really well, but having non aviaiton courses shows that you are diversified, and that you are good at numerous things. Does it depend on the airline, or are most airlines the same way. Also, I can't speak french to save my life, I probably know the names of three animals and two body parts, so will I still have good chances of working for a Canadian airline, or should I go else where. Also, in what contries will the best opportunities be to get into airlines around the year 2015-2020, because that is probably the time frame where I will be applying for the airlines.
Any other information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
