The Professional Pilot Associate of Applied Science degree is designed to prepare the individual for a career as a professional pilot by earning Private, Commercial, and Flight Instructor (CFI and CFII) Certificates along with Instrument and Multi-Engine ratings. The degree is awarded to students upon successful completion of a common core of general education courses and a preset selection of aviation classes closely mapped to the needs and demands of the aviation industry.
