Program Overview

The Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in aviation flight technology is offered by the Department of Aviation exclusively at the Athens campus. The degree program provides students with the opportunity to explore career possibilities in the field of aviation and to receive pilot certification through the instrument rating and the commercial pilot certificate before committing to the baccalaureate degree program. Also, students who complete the A.A.S. degree program may terminate their studies and enter the aviation industry to pursue career positions as certified pilots and other opportunities as may be available. However, A.A.S. degree students are strongly encouraged to continue their studies for the B.S. degree because of the competitive nature of the aviation industry wherein the most qualified personnel are sought.
