Kansas State Polytechnic

Professional Pilot

Thrilling flights. Panoramic views. Adventurous opportunities. The life of a professional pilot is full of exhilarating moments, but just like the properties of motion, you can’t arrive at one point without starting from another. Kansas State Polytechnic's award-winning professional pilot degree option is the perfect place to begin your aviation journey. Our flight operations curriculum does more than train pilots – students receive training above and beyond the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) minimum requirements, creating professionals that are confident to fly in all conditions, troubleshoot and solve problems, make ethical decisions and exceed the expectations of the aviation industry. With the degree option’s longstanding history at the university, K-State Polytechnic has turned people passionate about aviation into the best pilots in the skies.
