Aviation Degrees: Local, Virtual, Flexible

Aviation Programs at Indiana Wesleyan University

Launch your aviation career at IWU!

We know flight training can be expensive and comes with limited options. In many cases, students earn their flight certificates but not a degree.

Now, students can be granted college credits for their existing FAA Flight Certificates and be ready sooner to meet the demand for pilot shortages in the coming years.

At IWU, we partner with select FAA Part 141 approved flight schools to offer flexible, faith-based aviation degrees. Now students can earn their associate and bachelor’s degrees online from a regionally accredited university, graduating with the pilot certificates and college education to pursue their aviation career goals.

  • Online learning with on-site flight training at local partner flight schools – no need for students to relocate
  • Flight courses are taken early in the programs – students build hours and experience while they finish their degree
  • Students graduate with:
    • FAA Commercial Certificate with a Single or Multi-Engine Land Class Rating
    • FAA Instrument Rating
    • FAA Certified Flight Instructor (elective)
    • An associate or bachelor’s degree from IWU
