Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot (AVTP.S.BAS)

  • Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
  • Department: Aviation Technology
The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot is designed to enhance the technical skills of students who have earned an associate degree in Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot at Sinclair Community College, or who wish to pursue a complete bachelors degree. Students may choose fixed wing (single engine and multi-engine) or helicopter pilot certifications. The curriculum in the Professional Pilot program is rigorous and is designed for full time students to complete in 8 semesters. Students must maintain a minimum of a 2.5 GPA. Enrollment in the flight lab courses is limited and priority will be given to full time, degree seeking students. Part time students will be admitted on a space available basis. The student must obtain a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 2nd class medical certificate prior to enrolling in any of the flight labs. In addition to standard tuition fees there are additional course and lab fees for each of the flight labs in the program. The flight 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 flight lab fee must be borne by the student. See the Department for the latest course and flight lab fee costs. This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will be automatically awarded when the certificate requirements are completed. If you do not want to receive the embedded certificate(s), please notify Registration and Student Records at
