The Flight major coursework trains you to qualify for FAA Private, Instrument and Commercial certifications. Experience with high performance aircraft exposes you to the challenges associated with mission-field flying and seeks to develop the judgment, skill and overall airmanship required to fly successfully in a wide variety of contexts.
Program distinctions include an unparalleled cross-country flight project, as well as training in a wide variety of aircraft used currently on the mission field.
The Maintenance Specialist major builds on the foundation of Moody’s comprehensive AMT training. It includes engine overhaul, airframe rebuild, turbine engine maintenance and repair, avionics systems and installation and much more.
