Delta State University is one of the premier choices for students who desire a career as a pro­fessional pilot. Industry professionals agree that Commercial Aviation graduates display the highest levels of proficiency and professionalism which make them prime candidates for positions in today’s aviation marketplace . 


About the Commercial Aviation program

There are two main components to the Commercial Aviation (CAV) Program at Delta State University: flight training and a university degree. For an aspiring pilot, there are many ways to obtain flight training. Likewise, there are plenty of different opportunities and options for a four-year degree. However, the key advantage to training in a university-based system is that these two pursuits are integrated!

Students sign up for flight courses, which lead to academic credit hours as well as pilot certificates or ratings. These flight courses are preceded by specific ground training, which is also monitored by the FAA. Our flight and ground courses are approved by 14 CFR Part 141, which assures a certain level of structure.

At the same time, the program is painstakingly tailored to the college situation, and is delivered in a flexible training environment. In the end, DSU students experience ground and flying courses for all levels leading up to a Commercial Pilot Certificate, with Airplane Single- and Multi-Engine Land Instrument Airplane Ratings, and a Flight Instructor Certificate.
