The aviation technology curriculum leads to an associate of applied science degree for individuals pursuing a career as a professional pilot.

Ground schools and related courses are taken in residence, while flight training is arranged through local flying schools.

Rated pilots or military aviators may be eligible for credit based upon experience, through the Credit for Prior Learning program. Students may request credit by examination for any AVTY class. See the department for details.

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.
