The Mt. SAC Aeronautics Program is the largest two-year college program of its type in California and is nationally recognized as one of the finest. Mt. SAC is one of the largest community colleges in California with a total enrolment over 60,000 students.
Currently, approximately 400 students are enrolled in our aviation courses, including Air Traffic Control, Commercial Flight, and Aircraft Maintenance. College credit for flight training is available through concurrent enrolment in our flight courses, but flying is not required to obtain any of the degrees within our department.
We sponsor the Mt SAC Flight Training Association, which owns and operates training aircraft at College Aviation, our flight facility at nearby Brackett Airport. Additionally, the Mt SAC Flying Team competes with other colleges throughout the nation in aeronautics events, giving our students an opportunity for exceptional professional experience. We sponsor an active student chapter of Women in Aviation International (twenty-five percent of our students are female).
Mt. SAC is also an FAA CTI Program (air traffic control). We’ve been partnered with the FAA since 1997. The training program includes academics as well as ATC labs at on-campus and off-campus locations.
Mt. SAC is designed for commuting students no college dormitories are available. California residents are subject to course and material fees that typically total slightly over $400 per semester for full-time students, but residents of other states and international students pay approximately $4000 per semester.
You should review the College Catalog early in your planning for important information about admission, registration, and general education course requirements.
