Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot AVTP.S.BAS

Bachelor of Applied Science - 123 - 125 Credit Hours

Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
Department: Aviation Technology
Effective as of Fall 2022

What is the program about?

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot is designed to enhance the technical skills of students who have earned an associate degree in Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot at Sinclair Community College, or who wish to pursue a complete bachelors degree. The degree builds upon students' foundational understanding of aviation and pilot training. Students may choose fixed wing (single engine and multi-engine) or helicopter pilot certifications. The curriculum in the Professional Pilot program is rigorous and is designed for full time students to complete in 8 semesters. Enrollment in the flight lab courses is limited and priority will be given to fulltime, degree seeking students. Part time students will be admitted on a space available basis. The student must obtain a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 2nd class medical certificate prior to enrolling in any of the flight labs. In addition to standard tuition fees there are additional course and lab fees for each of the flight labs in the program. The flight lab fees are structured to cover the costs associated with the minimum flying hours required for each FAA certificate. Any additional flying time costs beyond the FAA minimums covered by the flight lab fee must be borne by the student. See the Department for the latest course and flight lab fee costs. This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will be automatically awarded when the certificate requirements are completed. If you do not want to receive the embedded certificate(s), please notify Registration and Student Records at studentrecords@sinclair.edu.

Program Outcomes

  • Demonstrate a thorough knowledge of aviation standards and their application acting as a professional pilot in aviation business operations.
  • Comprehend and apply aviation theory, business and leadership principles to serve in the capacity of a professional pilot in airline and corporate operations.
  • Exemplify a high standard of ethical and professional behavior.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities are available in airline, corporate and general aviation. Projected overall employment growth of airline and commercial pilots from 2014 to 2024 is 5% with 10% projected employment growth of commercial pilots from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. Expected job growth of 2,337 jobs in Nonscheduled Air Transportation within this sector (2012-2022). Five of the 25 most concentrated occupations in Aerospace require a bachelor's degree at entry.
