How is this college program different from just going to a flight school?
Although you could earn all the same FAA certificates by going to a reputable flight school. There are big advantages to making OCC a part of your aviation training:
You are able to count the flight training towards the college degree which saves you time over having to earn a degree separately from your flight training.
The Aviation Science A.S. college degree will allow you to move forward within your career. Even if you decide that you want to eventually earn a bachelor’s degree, the A.S. degree may allow you to begin your career sooner.
You will be a safer, more effective pilot and flight instructor with the knowledge you obtain in the aviation academic courses that go above and beyond what the FAA requires for certificates.
You will be surrounded by students who are on the same path as you, who help one another succeed, and will be the beginning of a critical network of contacts that will enhance your career.
