Program Information

 

testimonial
"As a commercial pilot now with 15+ years of experience with both regional and national carriers, as well as continued involvement in general aviation, I couldn't recommend a better program than Texas A&M University-Central Texas to have launched my career into the aviation industry. Though it may be known only as a chapter in my life called "college", it much more resembles that of a close family. My professor was a top-notch instructor and mentor who always had an open door policy for all of his students and who has become a lifelong friend. As a result of my time at A&M-Central Texas, I was provided with a rock-solid foundation of both knowledge and experience which helped me earn a job at a reputable regional carrier a few months before I graduated. If you are looking for an excellent education with ample opportunities and experiences that will propel you into a career in aviation without accruing crushing debt costs, I recommend considering Texas A&M University-Central Texas."
