FlightSafety International and West Virginia University Institute of Technology have launched an aviation management degree program partnership. The program enables students to receive college credit from West Virginia University Institute of Technology for courses completed at FlightSafety Academy. In addition, WVU Tech and FlightSafety Academy will develop an FAA-approved Bachelor of Science Aviation Management Program.

“Aviation has changed,” WVU Tech Aviation Program Coordinator Frank Robbins says. “Good stick and rudder skills simply aren’t enough in the modern cockpit. To be successful in 21st century aviation, pilots need a comprehensive knowledge base, strong cognitive abilities and excellent flight skills. Combining FlightSafety’s industry-leading flight training with WVU Tech’s aviation-oriented academic program provides our next generation of pilots with the preparation they need to meet tomorrow’s challenges.”

Students will benefit from FlightSafety Academy’s flight training and the comprehensive WVU Tech curriculum that includes general education, business, management, and aviation coursework.

“We are pleased that WVU Tech has selected FlightSafety Academy as their premier ab-initio training partner for commercial airlines,” FlightSafety Academy Manager Nancy Ritter says.
