    I have been reading about most airlines requiring a four year degree on top of 1500 hours and flight school training. I had a conversation with a flight instructor and he said they changed that requirement and most airlines do not require a four year degree anymore. I just wanted to do some fact checking and see if that was correct or not. The cost of flight school is staggering much less adding a four year college degree to the budget. Thanks in advance for any input!

    It was my understanding the big carriers like Delta still want the 4yr degree.
