    Hey a very close friend of mine is a pilot and he studied Electronic and Communications engineering at university with a very strong physics and maths background. If you are talking about A levels, he would suggest taking subjects like physics, maths, further maths, chemistry, and geography. Hope that helps ! (He is a commercial airline pilot like "British Airways" )

    Hi
    my mate wants to be a pilot, he sed u need physics, maths.
    geography is good.
    but you take a course which cost about £28000
    overall so be prepared to pay.
    holidays are massive and pay is great.
    lol. good luck.
