Upon successfully completing the Professional Pilot Concentration of the Bachelor of Science in Aviation Science (B.S.A.S.) degree, you will be well prepared and qualified to work as a flight crew member having earned your: Private Pilot License, Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot License, Multi-Engine Rating and/or CFI- Certified Flight Instructor License.
Flight Training Flexibility
Flight training flexibility is an important, and unique, aspect of the B.S.A.S. Professional Pilot program. While most academic flight programs require you to complete your training with a single flight provider, Baylor recognizes the sizable amount of time, energy, and resources that you will invest into your flight training. As a result, we offer you the opportunity to choose your flight training provider.
Additionally, this flexibility allows the student to complete a license or rating outside of Waco. This is important for potential AVS majors who may start the program with prior flight experience or for the student who wishes to return home during the summer but would like to continue completing a license or rating.
Local Flight Training Providers
Locally there are three flight training entities that can provide the applicable flight training require for the B.S.A.S. degree. It is important that you find the provider that works best for you. The three local flight training providers include:
