Thrilling flights. Panoramic views. Adventurous opportunities. The life of a professional pilot is full of exhilarating moments, but just like the properties of motion, you can’t arrive at one point without starting from another.
The flight operations curriculum does more than train pilots – students receive training above and beyond the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) minimum requirements, creating professionals that are confident to fly in all conditions, troubleshoot and solve problems, make ethical decisions and exceed the expectations of the aviation industry.
Kansas State Polytechnic’s professional pilot degree option has elite staff and equipment to ensure students receive top-of-the-line education and training.
K-State Polytechnic continues to be the provider of choice for professional pilots. Most graduates become airline pilots, corporate pilots, military pilots, or have careers flying other aircraft. With our longstanding history at the university, Kansas State Polytechnic has developed and maintained numerous industry relationships, creating a pathway to internships and careers for our students.
The next 10 years are expected to be the largest hiring boom in the history of the aviation industry.
The hiring surge is being fueled by several factors:
- The rapid growth of travel in Asia, which is on track as the largest air travel market in the world.
- A looming wave of pilot retirements in the USA.
- Proposed changes to rules that could increase the time pilots must train, rest and work.
- And increasing demand for air travel within the USA as the economy improves.
