It takes between 18 and 24 months to complete an Associates of Science degree in Aviation Science. Students have the opportunity for optional flight training with commensurate college credit. Earning pilot certifications is not required for graduation but it is desirable for career advancement.
A student seeking a career as a professional pilot would progress through the aviation pilot training curriculum to earn a commercial pilot certificate. Once the commercial pilot certificate has been earned, the student is able to fly, for hire, with commuter or charter companies in order to build experience needed for airline opportunities. Commercial pilot certificate holders may also choose to undergo additional training to become a certified flight instructor.
