*If general education courses are required, they may be available at multiple locations.

Turn your love of flying into a great career as a charter, regional or major airline pilot. Your training includes FAA approved 141 flight training for Private Pilot, Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot Multi-Engine, along with all the requirements to be Restricted-ATP eligible, so you’ll have flight experience requirements sooner for your first airline job. In addition, you’ll gain the knowledge, skills and in-flight experience to qualify for the Commercial Pilot certificate with single-engine, multi-engine and instrument airplane privileges; and Certificated Flight Instructor certificates with single-engine, multi-engine and instrument airplane privileges. You’ll also learn about weather, aerodynamics and aircraft systems, and will use the latest flight training equipment, including high-tech, modern aircraft and flight simulators. Enjoy small class sizes and one-on-one instruction tailored to your individual needs. You can start working in the industry before graduating, so you'll have more flight time, certificates and experience than typical four-year program graduates. You’ll be ready for an entry-level position as a flight instructor or transporting people, freight or mail.
