The professional piloting program offers a series of aviation piloting courses ranging from ground school classes for private through commercial flying, arctic survival, weather and aircraft maintenance classes. Rated pilots or military aviators may be eligible for credit based upon experience and FAA certificates, which may be applied towards an associate of applied science degree in professional piloting or a minor in aviation technology. See department personnel for details. UAF does not offer flight instruction.

A minor in aviation technology will give students an opportunity to become familiar with the field of aviation, with particular emphasis on the use of aviation as a tool and economic process within the Alaska environment.
