Since that is my ultimate goal, but I'm at least 5 years away from starting the training, I think this is a good time to start looking for flight schools. Most of you probably know more than I do, so a bit of help would be very much appreciated.

If you're in the USA, and looking to join an airline, you probably will need a four year degree. If you can afford it, Embry-Riddle is one of the best out there. Along with ERAU there is LeTourneau Christian in Texas (start on tailwheel Citabrias, which is a great skill to learn), Rocky Mountain College in Montana(?), and University of North Dakota. If you can find a cheaper way to a four year degree, such as community college (in New York we have SUNY schools which are free to the top 10% of each school and we have the Excelsior program as of right now), then consider ATP flight training. They have training all over the place and I believe it's pretty quick to your ATP certification. Idk if you need a commercial license beforehand but if you do then you might as well go to one of the colleges above. Besides that, almost every airport has a flight training program. My county only has two airports, one with Essential Air Service and the other unserved, and we have two flight training programs.

There is also Western University in Toronto and Liberty University.

If Europe based, I of course can offer advice. The US however is a mystery to me :P
