My oldest daughter wants to be a commercial airline pilot. She has one more year of high school, which means we've been visiting colleges. Purdue University and Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts are two schools where she can get a 4-year degree in Aviation Science and be trained to fly. I insisted that she get a liberal arts education as well as flight training. A well-rounded pilot is a better one, in my opinion.
Part of her high school education requires that she research a project that deals with her future career. So this summer she's working on getting her private pilot's license. I suggested that she start a blog, because she needs to keep a journal as one of the requirements.
