The Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) and Bristow Academy have teamed to add helicopter flight training to the university’s aviation program. The two programs are targeting military veterans eligible for educational support through the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
The FIT College of Aeronautics fixed-wing flight operations are based at Melbourne International Airport, but the new rotary-wing training will be offered at nearby Space Coast Regional in Titusville, Fla. All college coursework and ground school sessions will take place at FIT.
“We are very excited about this program,” Winston E. Scott, dean of the Florida Tech College of Aeronautics, said in a press release. “It provides flight students an opportunity to obtain a world class university aviation education combined with the specialized helicopter ratings leading to a highly successful aviation career.”
The combined university aviation and helicopter flight training program will start with the fall 2010 semester and be open to all students, not just veterans. The new track will offer a four-year degree and helicopter certificates and ratings through the commercial and instrument.
According to FIT College of Aeronautics Associate Professor Stephen K. Cusick, Bristow Academy will use 60 helicopters for instruction.
