Delaware State University’s Aviation Program provides students with a quality education and experience in preparation for careers in the aviation industry. Curricula in the Program lead to a Bachelor’s of Science degree with concentrations in Aviation Management or Professional Pilot. With some of the lowest fees in aviation, its own fleet of 10 Piper aircraft, an experienced and dedicated instructor staff, and almost new hangar facility, Delaware State University is simply the best Flight Education opportunity on the east coast of the United States.
The mission of the Program is to provide an industry standard and relevant educational experience that produces high quality aviation professionals who distinguish themselves and reflect the quality of their aviation program education.
Aviation Management graduates will be qualified for advanced training to fill the future vacancies in Air Traffic Control, Federal Aviation Administration and the airport administration career fields.
Professional Pilot graduates will complete their FAA requirements for Private Pilot, Instrument, Commercial, Multi-Engine, CFI, and CFII ratings while earning their Bachelor’s Degree. We also now offer helicopter education and training. Graduates of our FAA Approved Part 141 program get hired. The DSU flight training program will open the door to commercial and/or military aviation careers for those with the ability and tenacity to meet the rigorous academic and physical skills demanded of them.
The flight program is approved by the State of Delaware Education Department for Veterans Flight Training. The pillars of the Airway Science Program are Dedication, Safety, Unity, and an Attitude of Success.
