How to become a pilot?

Well im starting my senior year in high school this Aug. but i really want to know what i need to do to become a commercial pilot. Ive been on a plane many times and i really would like to one day fly them. What would i need to do after High School to become one, i was thinking of joining the US Air Force and cause i really want to fly a fighter jet. Can anyone tell what i need to do?

If you simply want to become airline pilot, do not join the military simply as a means to that end. Do it if you want to serve your country but don't think of it simply as a way to get "free flight training" so you can become an airline pilot... More

Joining the Air Force doesn't really guarantee of making you a pilot. To really find out and not waste your time or money, go to a local airport and find a flight instructor for a intro. flight. Then you will know for sure if you are pilot material or not.

Fixed wings are for monkeys... Fly helicopters, they're better Edit: DON'T join the military... Civil Pilots FTW (For The Win)
