Auburn University Offers Several Programs for Aviation Students
By Ti Windisch
July 26, 2017 - For the fourth time, Auburn University is present at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh to let prospective students know about the aviation education opportunities offered by its Aviation Center.
Auburn offers three different aviation majors for those interested in pursuing an aviation-related degree: professional flight management, aviation management, and aerospace engineering.
Auburn’s Aviation Center also offers pilot training, from private pilot level up to flight instructor, through its FAA-approved Part 141 Pilot School.
“Auburn is a fantastic place to live, and the Auburn family is probably the biggest selling point,” said Michael Rogers, an Auburn Striped Wings ambassador. “You come to Auburn and you’re immediately part of the family. We want to make you feel at home and make you feel comfortable.”
A new educational facility is under construction at the Auburn University Regional Airport (AUO), and the program has been approved to certify graduates for the 1,000 hours restricted airline transport pilot (R-ATP) certificate.
In addition to its information booth in Hangar B (2065), Auburn is also represented in the Textron area in the Main Aircraft Display area, where its Top Hawk is on display. The Top Hawk program is between Textron and top university aviation schools, and it provides Cessna Skyhawk airplanes to students and internship opportunities.
Auburn University has offered flight training for more than 70 years, and makes aviation-related student organizations and aviation scholarship opportunities available to its students. More information can be obtained at its booth or at www.Auburn.edu.
