Professional Pilot Technology - Associate of Applied Science (Major Code - PPT)

The Professional Pilot Technology Associate of Applied Science degree is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA certificate HR8S200Q) under Part 141 of its regulations. The degree program provides students with the knowledge, skills, and ratings necessary to become competent, qualified professional pilots. Areas of study include single-engine, multi-engine, flight instructor, and airline transport. All ratings are offered, and students may enter the program with or without prior flight training or certificates. For those with prior training, placement in the flight portion of the program will depend upon a skills analysis when they enter the program. A normal course of study will progress from the private pilot certificate to an FAA-certified commercial pilot degree with instrument and multi-engine ratings.
