Become a Pilot
Start Fall 2019
Our B.S. in Leadership and Organizational Management (LOM) with an Aviation Concentration will produce aviation leaders who can contribute to the changing landscape of the
aviation industry. Although a college degree is not a requirement for becoming a pilot,
a collegiate degree is perceived as the preferred path for aviation professionals, including, but not limited to, commercial or corporate airline pilots, flight instructors,
airport operations managers, mission aviators and aviation safety inspectors. Professionals
with a strong foundation in both aviation and leadership principles are in demand
throughout the air transport industry.
EMU at Lancaster collaborates with Aero-Tech Services, Inc., an FAA-approved Part 141 Pilot School, to provide ground and pilot training. Flight training will occur at the Aero-Tech facility at Lancaster Airport in Lititz, PA. Our partnership, between a specialized training provider and a liberal arts university, represents an integrated and collaborative approach to delivery of a collegiate aviation program.
