This program is designed to offer aviation subjects related to professional piloting. Each student who successfully completes the program will have obtained a minimum of a commercial pilot certificate with a multi-engine land and instrument rating. The student will obtain flight instruction from the one of the College’s approved fixed-based operators, who is also FAA and VA approved providers. Airplane fees and flight fees for pilot courses are in addition to tuition costs.
Prerequisites to entering the program include a second- class medical certificate and no speech impediments (a first class medical certificate is encouraged). A person with a waiver for a medical certificate is required to consult with the Aviation Department.
Professional Pilot students completing the associate degree at CCBC are required to have the following FAA flight certifications:
The average student will earn these flight certifications in approximately 250 hours of flight time
Students can earn additional ratings through successful completion of optional courses.
