Aviation and Flight Training
The Aviation Technology program is ideal for individuals who have an interest in exciting aviation careers. Students will be trained for employment as pilots with commercial, airlines, regional airlines, as well as air charter operations and corporate flight departments. Students who are seeking to earn a pilot's license for personal enjoyment are invited to attend our classes for a professional education. Our courses provide students with a solid background in aerodynamics, airplane system knowledge, navigation, meteorology, Federal Aviation regulations and the physical and psychological requirements for the safe operation in the National Airspace system. For those students who wish to pursue a career in aviation other than that of pilot, our Aviation Management program prepares students for careers in marketing, sales, airline operation or administration.
We are proud to announce the arrival of our two FAA certified Advanced Aviation Training Devices. These simulators present a realistic flight experience that can reduce the cost of flight training while providing a quality, true-to-life training environment..
Our current staff includes four professors, all former or current airline pilots. Our highly skilled instructors provide the benefit of decades of professional experience and the ultimate aviation expertise.
