Aviation Degree At Aviator College

Aviation Degree At Aviator CollegeMany colleges throughout the world offer degrees such as bachelor of aviation science or associates of aviation science. Stand alone these degrees do not qualify for any profession without your commercial pilot license (CPL) but make a good starting point if you want to do a masters degree in aviation. Also they look very good on your resume and may be a door opener when applying for a job.

Many airlines, especially in the United States, prefer applicants with a college degree. So why not let your flight training build up college credit and earn a degree?

Already trained pilots can do an aviation degree program with a college. Depending on the college they may credit your flight time and certificates towards a degree. Usually you don’t get full credit (as if you had done the flying with the college), but it may still be a money saver as flying with some colleges are more expensive then the average flight school. However some colleges require you to do at least two or more certificates and/or ratings with them to qualify for a degree.

For trained pilots some of the classes you have to take are pure repetition as they are meant for pilot students enrolled in the degree program. You still have to take them to get the needed credits to graduate.

An aviation degree is a good, and cost efficient, alternative to doing any other college degree first and then start flying like many students do today. You save time by doing the flight training while you work on a degree. At the same time you save money as the flight training build credit.
