Hello everybody!

I am 15 years old girl, I want to be a pilot in the future, I am studying and looking for a good university. But I don't know what are the requirements to become a pilot? Can someone give me some information about that standard?

Thanks a lot.

One of the best training universities is UND in Grand Forks North Dakota. They train hundreds of pilots for careers. They are also one of the leading drone schools for the military. Also helicopter training.
