What To Know About Flight Training Degree Program

What To Know About Flight Training Degree ProgramChoosing a flight training school is not an easy task. After looking at a variety of brochures and websites, they all start to look the same. It becomes difficult to separate good a flight school from those who are simply good at selling themselves.

Besides the obvious items such as location, type of aircraft, and availability of student loans, there are many other items to consider when selecting your flight school. Often these items are not in the brochures aviation flight training colleges send out to you.

Regardless of which aviation flight training college you choose, you still will leave with the required FAA certificates for your career in aviation. That’s assuming that the flight school uses a structured syllabus, you apply yourself and never forget your part of that equation. However, choosing a good flight school can make your flight training experience enjoyable, as opposed to a tedious task.

Here is a partial list to help you ask questions to select the best aviation school for your flight training:

  • Size of your classes
  • A list of charges not included in the package price – and there always are items like this. That’s normal, because not everyone learns at the same rate.
  • Average age and experience of the educational team.
  • The general weather conditions in the area. This means you should watch for words like “365 days of sunshine.” Is the weather comfortable to learn in and how much time each day is really flyable?
  • Are you paying for flying time only, and if not what are the other costs that will impact the total expense and speed at which you complete your training?
  • Many career schools claim to have connections with an airline or even several airlines. This is something that often is not valuable to you.
  • The airline industry is in a state of constant change – it is nearly impossible to tell who will be hiring when you are done with your education and finished building your flight experience.
  • Be careful of the guaranteed interview, and never pick a school for the so-called guaranteed job. This may not be a wise investment of your money; it may just be a marketing effort by the school. Be sure to ask how many students got interviews, jobs and how long it took them to get hired.
