Professional Pilot (AVT.S.STC)

  • Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
  • Department: Aviation Technology
This program is designed to allow the student to earn FAA certificates and ratings to become a professional pilot. The student, having completed this course work, will have the background and skills to enter the aviation industry as a professional pilot or continue towards a Bachelor's degree in aviation science (or a related field). Students may choose fixed-wing (airplane single engine and multi-engine) or helicopter certifications. The student must obtain a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Third (3rd) Class medical certificate prior to enrolling in ANY flight lab. In addition to standard tuition fees, there are additional lab fees for each flight lab in the program. These lab fees are structured to cover the costs associated with the minimum flying hours required for each FAA certificate. Any additional flying time costs beyond the FAA minimums covered by the lab fee must be borne by the student. See the Department for the latest lab fee costs.
