For starters, who cares if the majors are hiring or not (of course i care, but c'mon) as long as there are airplanes in the sky, doesn't matter if they're big or small....count me in. I started when I was 14, my dad wants me to major in Engineering...but I'm going to stick with Aeronautics because that's my passion, I don't care if they hire me or not I want to be good at what I like.
dont take this the wrong way 747, but quite honestly your posts have been really wierd.
Just remember your only 13 the airline industry goes in cycles what goes up must come back down and vice versa.
Just get all the information you can here and make an informed decision. Be very cautious about a place that wants you to drop 10's of thousands of dollars and says there is no need for a degree. What is your big rush anyway. Part of being young is having fun and enjoying life (your only young once). What a boring world we would have if everyone was so focused on their careers that they didnt take time to have a little fun between the ages of 16-24. Just keep plugging away at what your working on and soak in as much info as you can. I mean your only in high school you have your whole life ahead of you.
Well save your money and go be a basketweaver or something like that.. I dont mind competition but hey if you want to bail on you dream of flying the heavy metal then so be it just one less for me to worry about.
