The Aviation Concentration prepares the aspiring career pilot for immediate entry-level employment in the aviation industry.  Coursework within the program teaches commercial level aerodynamics, aircraft systems, federal aviation regulations, aircraft performance, aeronautical decision making/human factors, flight physiology, and navigation.  The curriculum also places an emphasis on the professional skills and flight instruction theory for graduate marketability. Students will be given the opportunity to build flight time and choose to become an airline pilot or corporate pilot once additional required hours are met.

Note: Prior to beginning aviation coursework, students are required to provide proof of a third-class FAA medical certificate; read, speak, write, and understand the English language; and provide a U.S. Birth Certificate or Passport to show United States Citizenship. A Photo ID is required if a US passport is unavailable. Students who are not U.S Citizens must successfully complete a TSA screening. Students will also apply for a student pilot certificate on the first day of class.

There will be seven aviation courses students will need to complete for this concentration. Theory classes will be taught at Saint Francis University and lab/flight will be completed at the John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport.
