If my goal job title were to be aerospace engineer, what would employer like more: Double major in aerospace engineering and physics, or a masters in aerospace engineering. The reason it is one or the other is I would only like to do only 4 years of school and I can complete a masters in four. Any advice would help. Thanks.

Just a guess, but I suspect those hiring entry-level aerospace engineers are looking for competent aerospace engineering graduates with an underlying skill set specific to the position. The rest are details.

Masters in aerospace, hands down. BS in physics doesn't qualify you for really anything.

Either route works but it depends on what kind of jobs you're looking for.
Physics grads are often hired in aerospace or defense to do more generalized work like system engineering or data analysis.
The aerospace degrees would help you get access or consideration for more specialized jobs.

Oh look, unsubstantiated claims again, nothing to see here OP.
