    There are no academic requirements to being a pilot. None.


    The only time there are requirements are for certain pilot jobs.

    To give yourself a better chance at a- successfully passing training, and b- getting a job, it's prudent to get the best qualifications you can. But it is by no means mandatory.

    Depends entirely upon what course you want to go and do.

    I know pilots who studied engineering. Obviously they needed a bit of maths.
    But I also know pilots who studied geography, architecture, Portuguese, computer science, etc.

    Like I said, there's no set requirement for pilot. Study what you want to study and what you'll be good at studying. Decide what you'd like to study and then find out what the requirements are for that course.

    No, maths is not compulsory to be a pilot. During training, the hardest maths you'll come across is probably trigonometry. It's mainly just adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. It's a very common myth that all pilots are mathematical geniuses.

    Sadly, in this day and age an additional entry requirement is tens of thousands of pounds in cash. Sponsorships and scholarships are now dead and buried, as of yesterday. British Airways, who have always had a tradition of offering sponsorships to their cadet scheme announced the return of their eagerly-awaited Future Pilot Programme yesterday. It will cost the applicant a heartbreaking £115,000.
