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.
