The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Airway Science Technology, Flight Emphasis program is designed to prepare students to apply technical knowledge and skills to the flying of commercial, corporate, or private aircraft. Program content includes private, instrument, commercial single-engine, commercial multi-engine, and flight instructor certifications. The program develops students` willingness to learn, critical thinking, organizational skills, initiative, reliability, accountability, communication, and resource management skills. During the program, students will be provided the resources and training required for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) written and practical examinations.
Flight and simulator training costs are the responsibility of the student. These include hourly costs for aircraft and flight instruction, tuition, fees, and other expenses. Once students have commenced flight training within the CGCC Airway Science, Flight Emphasis program, they will not receive college credit for flight instruction received at flight schools other than the school or schools with which Maricopa County Community College District has currently contracted for such instruction.
Students must meet FAA Aviation English Language Standards and complete Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Citizenship Verification (United States citizens) or Alien Flight School Program Application (non-United States citizens). By enrolling in this program, students agree to submit to random drug testing. Students must complete a security threat assessment for airport apron access.
A current medical certificate is required for all students planning to begin flight training. The physical examination must be performed by a medical doctor who is a designated Aviation Medical Examiner. Students are advised to obtain their medical certificates well in advance of beginning the flight program. This will ensure that medical problems or physical limitations that may alter career plans can be addressed before entering flight courses.
There are three types of medical certificates - Class III, Class II, and Class I, but students are advised to obtain a Class I certificate if they are planning a career in professional flight.
Students using Veteran Affairs education benefits must have at least a Class II medical certificate, but Class I is recommended, before beginning 200-level flight courses.
Flight labs must be taken concurrently with the appropriate ground courses. Attendance is mandatory in the aviation ground school courses in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulation (FAA) Part 141. Failure to meet these attendance requirements will disqualify the student for FAA pilot certification.
Aviation and related courses from other colleges and universities may transfer to CGCC. All aviation courses, flight or non-flight, are reviewed by the Aviation Program Coordinator for applicability.
Transfer of Pilot Ratings
Students who have pilot certificates or ratings from a college level program may apply for prior learning assessment. Students should complete this process before enrolling in any 200-level ground or flight courses.
In all cases, it is the responsibility of the student to initiate the process.
After three failed attempts in any flight or ground course, excluding withdrawals, students must seek division approval for re-enrollment.
Students must earn a grade of C or better for all courses required within the program. Overall program minimum GPA = 2.50.
All students must currently possess a Valid FAA Medical Certificate
Students must consult with a Program Director, as the program prerequisites may be waived as requirements to the program for those students who have FAA Private Pilot Certificates and/or have course equivalents as indicated by assessment.
