    Airway science—aviation maintenance (AWS AM)

    Bachelor of science in aeronautical technology (airway science) 124 hours required for graduation

    Students may continue their studies in aviation maintenance beyond the associate degree to obtain the bachelor of science degree in aeronautical technology. The two-year associate degree is designed as a terminal degree for the average maintenance technician.

    The bachelor of science degree is designed for the maintenance technician with a future goal of a management position. This would include shop foreman, lead technician, and other supervisory positions.

    The additional courses will give the student background for leadership roles in the aviation maintenance area. Courses in people skills and communications, both verbal and written, are enhanced. Additional math skills as well as computer skills will be developed.

    There are two additional speciality areas in the maintenance field covered: the non- destructive testing of aviation parts and aircraft, and also the use of advanced composites in the larger transport category aircraft. This degree would be a strong asset to the maintenance technician looking for employment in the airline industry.

    Aviation maintenance review (AVMR)
    Aviation maintenance review courses are designed to provide training for those students qualifying under FAR 65.77. This training is usually necessary to pass the FAA written, oral, and practical exams for the airframe and powerplant certificate. The credit hours for this training can be applied toward requirements for an associate degree in aviation maintenance. A maximum of 30 semester credit hours can be waived for the FAA certificate for airframe and powerplant maintenance when enrolled in an associate degree program at the college.

    Avionics technology degree (AVIO)
    Associate of applied science 69 hours required for graduation

    Action is under way to modify the associate degree in avionics technology. Students will not be accepted into the avionics technology degree program, effective in the 2000-2001 academic year. Students interested in an avionics career should consider the electronic engineering technology associate degree program, as well as the certification of an airframe rating through the airframe and powerplant certificate program.

    Avionics is a contraction of aviation electronics. It deals with all electronics on board an aircraft, and includes the areas of communication, navigation, and flight control. The program prepares students to be technicians in both general aviation and air carrier Repair Stations. There is a tremendous need for trained, qualified technicians in avionics, and coupled with the rapid advances in technology, the need is growing at a greater rate than for any other aviation-related career field.

    Professional pilot degree (PPIL)

    Associate of technology 68 hours required for graduation

    The Jeppesen-Sanderson integrated flight training program is utilized to obtain private, commercial, instrument, and multi-engine ratings.

    The two-year associate degree emphasizes business courses as a complement to the English, math, and science requirements. Professional pilot graduates may fly as charter, business, corporate, or airline pilots.

    The flight training program is FAR 141 approved. The approval allows students to meet the commercial instrument minimum-flight-hour requirement in 190 hours instead of 250 hours.

    Flight training is conducted in Cessna 172s, Beechcraft Sundowners, Beechcraft Bonanzas, Beechcraft Barons, and a Beechcraft C-90 King Air. Both standard and full graphics simulators are used for additional training benefit.

    The lab time reflected in the pilot courses are minimum times. Significant time commitment is necessary for labs and flight training. This program requires additional costs above the standard tuition, books, and supplies.
