The program is a unique partnership between Casper College and air flight schools. The program allows students to complete academic coursework and flight training toward an associate degree in aviation and a commercial pilot’s license. The primary goal is to provide a curriculum that will lead to employment in commercial aviation or airway science.

Academic coursework takes place at Casper College. Students are allowed to schedule flight training around these courses. Students make their own arrangements for the actual flight training on a contractual basis with any flight school. Flight costs are not covered by tuition costs.
