CURRICULUM GUIDE

Aviation Flight Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0259  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2008)

The commercial flight training program provides all required ground,
simulator, and in-flight technical training to meet Federal Aviation
Administration requirements for Commercial Pilot Certification.  This program
will conduct ab-initio training (no previous experience) or build on previous
experience of the student.  Students entering this program are required to
accomplish an F.A.A. Class II medical exam prior to entering training.  Normal
motor skills and academic ability will provide functional competency to
support certification.  Graduates are initially employed as instructor pilots
by flight training schools.  As the graduates achieve 1200 to 1500 flight
hours, they are competitive for hiring by regional or commuter airlines as
First Officers.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.
