But i don't really want to pay 60,000 to 90,000 pounds to get a degree also I don't want to go into the military because it make me sad because my father died in the RAF. So is there a way of becoming an airline pilot without having a degree.

But i would like to be able to earn a good amount of money. I have a budget of 35,000 to pay for lessons or a different plane if you dont think the cessna 170 is good enough.

If you want to be an airline pilot but you aren't willing to pursue the training and education that airlines desire, you probably need to rethink your career plans.

Getting some experience on a small plane never hurts of course, but on training to become an airline pilot it's not going to get you anywhere. A degree is what counts and the way to get that degree (not even talking about the money here) is by studing from the books. .
