Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne and Sweet Aviation are partnering on a new Professional Flight Associate of Applied Science degree. The program will combine 32 credit hours of classroom time with more than 200 hours of flight training and is slated to launch this fall.
The programs is the second of its kind for Ivy Tech. The college’s Fort Wayne campus has offered Aviation Maintenance Technology since 2007.
The training aims to prepare students for a career in aviation in two years.
After graduation, students will be ready to work as Single Engine Land rated commercial pilots or have the opportunity to transfer credits to an aviation management bachelor’s program at a four-year university.
“With career opportunities in aviation at an all-time high, our partnership with Ivy Tech will allow students to pursue and achieve the aviation degree and certifications they need at a respected institute with access to Sweet Aviation’s experienced and professional certified flight instructors and premier fleet of aircraft,” says Joel Pierce, General Manager and Chief Flight Instructor at Sweet Aviation.
