Careers: Flying & Aviation/aviation careeer
I'm a young girl still doing my high school...I want to know what subject i need to choose if i want to be a pilot
You state you are living in Swaziland and I cannot address what is required in Africa as the requirements may be different than in the United States. I suggest you search the companies where you one day woould like to fly, then look to see if they have any education specific requirements. In the United States, it doesn't matter what subjects you take but having an Associates or Bachelors degree is preferred, if not required, to fly professionally. (You do not need a degree in math or aero engineering as some believe.) Basic high school algebra or physics is more than enough to understand the concepts of flight and calculate flight performance.
You should definitely reach out to the South African Women In Aviation group:
"Founded in 2009, SAWIA is a registered non-profit organisation and public benefit organisation dedicated to the empowerment of women in the aviation and aerospace industry in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. By establishing a forum that creates access to more experienced industry professionals, affording aspiring aviatrix the chance to exchange ideas, network and develop relationships crucial to career success, SAWIA aspires to be the primary network for established and aspiring female aviation professionals in the region."
Specifically, their Girls Fly Program is something you may want to get involved with-
"SAWIA’s Girl Fly Programme in Africa (GFPA) is an information and skills development education programme for high school learners who have an interest in the aviation and aerospace industry. The education programme is designed to expose young women (and the public) to a world of opportunities, while highlighting the achievements of women in aviation and aerospace."
The International Organization of Women Pilots known as "The Ninety-Nines Inc." and Women in Aviation International are both US based but have worldwide memberships. They also both provide flight scholarships to qualified members.
