Should You Earn Your Aviation Degree During Flight School?
While not all employers require an aviation degree, it does open the door to many exciting pilot career opportunities. It also shows a level of commitment and education greater than those without an aviation degree.
The COCC Aviation Program provides a practical, supportive environment to start your career as a professional airplane pilot. You’ll have the opportunity to earn a commercial pilot certificate and a flight instructor certificate, while also earning an Associate of Applied Science degree in Aviation Science. The COCC degree program also gives students access to low-rate federal financial aid, Pell grants, and other funding options that are not available to those attending LEFA directly.
COCC’s program allows most students to earn their AAS along with all their flight ratings in two years. Students wishing to obtain a bachelor’s degree have the option of transferring to either Oregon Institute of Technology or Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University upon completing the COCC program.LEARN MORE
