Program Information

The Aviation program offers students across campus a unique opportunity for exposure to the aviation field through completion of a minor. If a student in any field wants to work in the aviation industry as a finance manager, scheduler, operations manager, or airport planner, a minor in aviation is highly recommended. As part of the minor, students will earn their Federal Aviation Administration Private Pilot license with Instrument rating.

Student Learning Outcomes

Students completing the Aviation minor will be able to:

  • gain an understanding of performance factors, aircraft design, meteorology, and decision-making as they relate to aviation.
  • apply the necessary skills to successfully pass the FAA Private Pilot certificate and instrument rating.

Course Delivery Formats

Aviation students learn through lecture, laboratory, student lead instruction, and flight training based at the Brookings Regional Airport.
