A new poll conducted by British Airways shows that working as a pilot is still a dream job for some kids.
The independent research poll of 650 children aged 6-12 years revealed that being a footballer (soccer player) is the number one goal for boys, along with being a pilot, and a superhero.
Meanwhile, girls hope to become teachers, vets and medical staff when they grow up.
Some of the more unusual jobs that children nominated were: a Formula One driver, a shark fisherman, an inventor, a monster truck driver, a pirate, a princess and a tree house builder.
The findings also showed regional differences: Children in London and Wales grow up wanting to be pilots, kids in Northern Ireland aspire to be Superheroes, youngsters from the South West hope to be teachers, children in the North West aspire to be footballers and Scottish kids hope to be vets.
