Aviation School

Aviation schools can be found in many places across the United States. Some institutions offering aviation schools include (but are not limited to) public colleges and universities, vocational and technical schools, private companies, military programs and private individuals. Most people chose to attend aviation school or taking flying lessons with the long-term goal of becoming a pilot. After completing aviation school, some people plan to work for commercial airlines, others may seek positions as private pilots and still others may hope to continue a military career involving aviation. For all of these career paths, training does not end with the completion of aviation school.

If a person goes on to become a commercial pilot, he/she will need to have the following to secure an entry level pilot position with any of the major airlines: Certification documenting the passing of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) written exams and flight tests A minimum of 1500 hours of flight time Be a minimum of 23 years old Have experience flying at night Be experienced flying using only instruments Pass medical, psychological and skills tests Have experience on specific types of airplanes Possess an Airline Transport certificate which includes multiengine and instrument ratings

If a person is pursing a military aviation training program they must have a bachelors degree prior to entry. Military training for airplane pilots lasts two years. Helicopter pilots train for one to two years. Navigators for both airplanes and helicopters are trained for six to 12 months. These training programs include instrument training and combat training. Military branches offer intense, high-level training programs for pilots and navigators. Completion of a military aviation school is highly regarded in both military and civilian sectors. There is an agreement in the private sector that military aviation training is some of the best experience a pilot can have as they are exposed to a variety of planes, conditions and situations. Many pilots who complete military aviation training are highly sought after by the commercial airline industry upon leaving the service.
