About

Kansas State Polytechnic’s professional pilot degree option has elite staff and equipment to ensure students receive top-of-the-line education and training.

Our staff includes more Master Certified Aviation Instructors than any other college or university in the nation. A large and active regional airport just steps away from the classroom, a training building, a private ramp, three hangers and more than 30 aircraft – mostly built in the state of Kansas – are all amenities available to students. Facilities also include a bank of flight simulators with visual displays and a full-time maintenance staff in the hanger.

K-State Polytechnic continues to be the provider of choice for professional pilots. Most graduates become airline pilots, corporate pilots, military pilots, or have careers flying other aircraft. With our longstanding history at the university, Kansas State Polytechnic has developed and maintained numerous industry relationships, creating a pathway to internships and careers for our students.
