Aspiring helicopter pilots can now earn a four-year degree and attend professional helicopter training simultaneously at Florida Tech in Melbourne, FL. The new program, a joint venture between Florida Tech and Bristow Academy, will produce commercial helicopter pilots with instrument ratings who hold degrees in aviation management.
According to Steve Cusick, the college’s helicopter program director, Post 9/11 GI-Bill veterans could be able to fund the entire program through their benefits and should contact the school for more information.
Florida Tech is only one of a handful of universities offering a four year degree combined with helicopter pilot training. Other programs include those offered by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Arizona and the University of North Dakota.
