B.S., Professional Pilot

It’s time to fly. Being a professional pilot starts here. With expert knowledge of flight systems and structures, tech skills, and unmatched in-flight experiences, you’ll earn the certificates and ratings you need to earn the title and face the horizon head-on.

The mission of the Bachelor of Science in Professional Pilot is to prepare students to be professional pilots and enable them to qualify for Federal Aviation Administration certificates and ratings required for giving flight and ground instruction and commercial and instrument operations in FAR part 121 air carrier operations or business general aviation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are excited to welcome a new cohort of 90 students to the fall 2024 Professional Pilot program.
