*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to 67-68 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived. 

Program Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this degree option, students will be able to:

  1. demonstrate leadership, teamwork, managerial, and organizational skills within the aviation industry;
  2. analyze and assess airline and airport operations, government regulations, and safety and environmental concerns to plan and implement appropriate strategic and tactical business methodologies;
  3. demonstrate flight proficiency and instrument rating, safety, and procedural skills to obtain FAA licensure required to secure a position as a commercial flight pilot; and
  4. speak and communicate clearly and decisively using standard industry pilot-controller phraseology.

Program Description:

Today’s pilots are highly trained professionals who are not only responsible for the safety of their passengers and cargo, but also for the operation of some very sophisticated and expensive equipment. Pilots must meet FAA medical standards.

Graduates of the pilot training option will have completed all academic training required for the commercial pilot certificate. Pilots with a commercial pilot certificate may find employment with regional and major airlines, corporate flight departments, charter or cargo operators, agricultural flying, flight schools, or with a government agency or military service. Non-flying positions are also available with the Federal Aviation Administration or other federal, state and local aviation agencies.
