An associate degree is a two-year post-secondary course of study that graduates can apply toward the first couple of years of a bachelor degree. Alternatively, students can enter the workforce upon graduation.

What is an Associate of Science in Pilot Training? It typically prepares students to work in the field of commercial aviation as pilots. Consisting of a combination of ground classes and flight labs, the program arms students with the knowledge and experience to pass the Federal Aviation Administration private pilot, instrument rating and commercial pilot knowledge and practical examinations. Federal aviation certified instructors lead courses and flight labs. Ground courses are often visual in nature, consisting of educational videos and dynamic PowerPoint presentations.

Graduates may learn how to fly a plane in all weather conditions, develop a thorough understanding of the control panel and ground signals, and learn how to navigate through an emergency situation – all of which may make them appealing job candidates.

Just like an educational program, tuition and other fees such as books vary from school to school. Country can also impact the overall cost of earning an Associate of Science in Pilot Training. It is best to get a customized estimate directly from the student’s school of choice.

While commercial airlines may spring to mind initially, there are many ways to make a living as a pilot. It is important to note that most of the following positions require a commercial pilot certificate and second class medical certificate. Job titles in this field include major airline pilot, regional airline pilot, military pilot, corporate pilot, air taxi pilot, air traffic reporting pilot, agricultural pilot, helicopter pilot and flight instructor. In addition to the private sector, the United States government also employs pilots in a number of different roles, with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Administration among the largest employers.
