Dear Prospective Student:
Welcome to the COCC Aviation - Professional Pilot Program.
The COCC Aviation - Professional Pilot program provides students with the knowledge and skills required to enter the exciting world of professional aviation.
While you earn the Associate of Science or the Associate of Applied Science degree, you will also earn the FAA ratings required to become a professional pilot. Specifically, you will earn the private pilot certificate, instrument rating, commercial pilot certificate, multi-engine rating (airplane track), and the Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) certificate. Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII) certificate and Multiengine Instructor (MEI) ratings are optional. Helicopter students will earn the private pilot certificate, instrument rating, commercial pilot certificate, and the Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) certificate.
Individual courses may also be taken by anyone wanting to complete a ground school or take a refresher course, and courses may be taken for credit or non-credit. Contact us whether your goal is to get your private pilot certificate, add an instrument rating, or to become a commercial pilot. We can help with the finest ground instruction, taught by highly experienced and qualified instructors.
Before you enroll in this program, first contact us so we can answer your questions about our program and about aviation as a career. Our class schedule will normally provide two aviation classes that you should take each term, and you would normally want to take AV 110 Private Pilot (Airplane) or AV 115 Private Pilot (Helicopter) the first term it is available. These are the foundational courses upon which all other aviation classes are based and will get you in the air at the earliest opportunity.
We want to make sure that all your questions are answered and you're sure that our program is a good fit with your goals before you enroll. Give us a call to discuss your plans, to schedule an appointment or to set up a visit to the campus.
We're not only here to help you get started in the program, but we're available throughout your program to help you plan, choose classes and a career path as you finish your degree. Our small class sizes, allow for great student/teacher ratios and you have easy access to the instructors throughout the program.
The Professional Pilot program is very demanding, exciting and rewarding. If you are up to the challenge, just follow the steps to get started in our program.
