Aviation at OHIO

For more than 70 years, Ohio University has trained pilots and aviation professionals who keep our air traffic moving safely and efficiently. Our graduates create for good by keeping passengers, crew, and cargo fast of the ground or at 30,000 feet - it's our top priority.


    Aviation Flight

    As an aviation flight student at the Russ College, you may begin flight training during your first year of study to work toward earning pilot certification via the department's FAA-approved Part 141 flight program.


    Aviation Management

    Want to keep airport operations running smoothly, or have a hand in regulatory issues? Our aviation management program is a partnership with the College of Business where you'll develop a thorough background in aviation.


    Aviation Technology

    With our two-year degree in aviation technology, you'll learn to become a professional pilot through FAA Path 141 flight program, earning the private pilot certificate, instrument rating, and commercial pilot certificate.
