Ohio University Front Door -Undergraduate Catalogs- Graduate Catalogs


Students in the aviation program can complete their bachelor's degree requirements under either of two options: flight or aviation management. A two-year A.A.S. degree in aviation technology is also available at Ohio University.

The flight option meets the guidelines of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and prepares students for career opportunities in commercial aviation as FAA-certified pilots, aircrew members, and other positions in aviation-related business and industry. An aviation degree provides students with the ability to undertake roles in the national aviation system and to progress to supervisory and managerial positions with necessary leadership and human relations skills. Additionally, this educational background gives graduates the broad knowledge base, perspective, and flexibility to compete in the increasingly technical and automated environment of aviation.

Flight option students are expected to complete all flight course requirements in one quarter. However, in extenuating circumstances (bad weather, etc.) students can, with permission, carry over completion of the course in the following quarter. If you do not complete the requirements in the second quarter, you may be automatically dropped from the program.

Students must maintain a 2.0 overall g.p.a. to enroll in flight courses. Flight option majors must receive a grade of at least a C- (70%)in AVN 110, AVN 310, AVN 350, and AVN 440. It is possible to substitute elective courses in the curriculum as long as you maintain the minimum total credits for that subject area and obtain prior approval in writing from the department/college.

Flight option majors must take AVN 400, AVN 420, AVN 430, AVN 445, and AVN 455 at Ohio University.
