    I'm a middle aged man. I do love rockets though. Welcome to the forum. Have you launched any rockets yet, or are you just thinking about it?

    Yes! I'm 14 and want to be an aerospace engineer! You can tell by looking at my profile picture. :-p However, I'm not going to be 14 in November.

    Check out my learning resources that I've compiled here. This list is not intended to replace college, but you should be able to design some sort of plane on your own by the time you finish reading all those materials. The list is subject to edit without notice.

    I recommend getting a Kindle and getting all those resources. They're so much cheaper if you get Kindle. The best Kindle is around $400 and the least best is around $100. Plus, Kindles don't fold up like regular books if you leave them open.

    Speaking of colleges, you should try and exceed in school to try to get into a prestigious university. I'd aim for MIT if I were you.
