AVIATION

Bachelor of Science

William Jessup University Aviation prepares students for success in the field of aviation. Our graduates will go on to be professional aviators in commercial, military, and missionary aviation. Jessup has a Letter of Agreement (LOA) with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorizing our graduates to apply for their Restricted Airline Transport Pilot (ATP-R) with only 1,000 flight hours rather than 1,500 hour. Our university and nearby flight school is located in an ideal region of California for aviation. The weather is conducive for year-round flying, with views of the often snow-capped mountain range of Sierra Nevada from the air. As one of a few faith-based collegiate aviation programs in Northern California, our program will prepare you for success in the field of aviation.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The B.S. in Aviation degree is designed to produce highly-skilled, industry-ready, principled professionals for the field of aviation. Its purpose is to educate and equip “ACE” (adept, certified, and ethical) pilots who are willing and able to positively contribute to the field of aviation and society. Thus, aviation students will graduate with an in-depth knowledge of aviation operations, aerodynamics, laws, regulations, security, meteorology, and airline management issues and practices, both from a domestic and international perspective. Moreover, students will obtain a solid liberal arts education in subjects such as English, history, science and mathematics. Finally, students will deepen their faith via biblical studies as they prepare for successful careers as professional pilots.
