Professional Flight Concentration

Fly or control: you can do either or both!

At LeTourneau University's well-rounded commercial aviation school, you don't have to pick between air traffic control and flight training. We fuse pilot training with ATC training to expand your expertise and broaden your career options. While our Air Traffic Management program offers an exciting career with excellent benefits and pay, some individuals aren't satisfied with staying on the ground. LETU aviation students who earn the Bachelor of Science in Air Traffic Management with the optional professional flight concentration not only have an FAA-approved Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI) degree, but are also fully-trained commercial multi-engine pilots with instrument ratings. If you are a future controller with your head in the clouds, this is the perfect aviation degree for you! 

This flight-focused version of our bachelor's in ATC management degree option is also an excellent choice for future professional pilots who wish to have an alternative aviation career. Your commercial flight training at LETU will set you apart for a pilot career in the airlines or in corporate aviation, or to work in the FAA as an air traffic controller. Whichever vocation you choose, the additional business management training this degree provides will open even more leadership opportunities for you to succeed along the way.
