American Flyers and Nova Southeastern University (NSU) are hoping to train more pilots at a time when many in the aviation industry have predicted a pilot shortage. The two schools have partnered to offer a bachelor’s degree in human services administration with a concentration in human factors in aviation.
Two terms will be launched in the fall, the first beginning Aug. 20 and the second Oct. 15. The admission deadline for the August term is July 22, and the deadline for October’s courses is Sept. 16.
Academic courses through NSU, which is based in Davie, Fla., will be completed online, while students will go through flight training with American Flyers. Students can earn their private pilot certificate and instrument rating, or they can also pursue advanced certificates and ratings for the commercial, multiengine, and flight instructor.
The program will include courses on “communication, critical thinking, problem-solving and resource management,” according to a NSU press release.
