Dreaming of a future in Aviation?

To achieve a successful career as a pilot, it is essential to obtain a bachelor’s degree, possess pilot ratings and build flight time and we can help. Air Associates of Kansas has partnered with Kansas State University Salina and Johnson County Community College to provide you the bachelor’s degree and training you need to reach your aviation goals. This degree has been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for a reduction (from 1500 to 1000 hours) in the flight time required for your ATP certificate thus expediting the launch of your aviation career.


Why Should You Consider the Professional Pilot Degree Program?

Obtaining your professional pilot degree through this unique partnership allows you to:

• Take advantage of job opportunities at Air Associates – earn money while you’re earning your degree.
• Flight instruction (once you’ve earned your CFI).
• Crew member for Part 91 and Part 135 missions flown by Air Associates

Students graduating in 2015 or later, must complete the pre-college curriculum with at least a 2.0 GPA (2.5 for non-Kansas residents) AND achieve one of the following to be considered for qualified admissions:

• Minimum 21 composite ACT score
• Minimum 980 SAT I, CR+M
