About

Vermont Technical College is the first college to offer an Aviation degree in the state of Vermont, and we hold our own on a national level too. This program will have you in the air during your first semester and offers the option to complete all 9 FAA certificates and ratings, including the Seaplane Rating. Gain valuable experience completing internships or paid employment for an airline or airport in the unique Vermont and New England flying terrain. You will be flying with career pilots that maintain their long-term industry connections, increasing your chances for employment opportunities.

Still up in the air? Consider that the students in the Professional Pilot program can become Certified Flight Instructors by their junior year and graduate with typically 250 or more flight hours already under their belts. That flight time makes graduates highly valued in the industry.
