Program Information

The Aviation Education Specialization is for students who wish to become Certified Flight Instructors and later be professional pilots in industry. Many of our graduates are in the airlines, military, government, and corporate workplaces. Top performing students of this option are often brought on as flight instructors in the SDSU program during their junior and senior years.

Student Learning Outcomes

Graduates of the Aviation Education program will be able to:

  • apply the general education core to the aviation profession.
  • demonstrate instructional knowledge in single and multi-engine aircraft to the FAA commercial pilot standard.
  • demonstrate instructional knowledge through creating and teaching relevant aviation topics to colleagues.

Additionally, all students will participate in a senior capstone course that is designed to bridge the gap between their educational experience and future career. Students are evaluated using direct and indirect assessment to assure competency within the profession using a comprehensive assessment plan.
