Future pilots, ready to fly?
Embry-Riddle’s Flight Exploration is one of our most popular programs and offers a wide range of opportunities for students wishing to pursue a career in aviation. Flight instructors and professors from our College of Aviation work alongside students to perfect the skills a pilot needs to operate successfully in the national airspace system. Students will learn how to plan and conduct a cross-country flight, identify weather sources used for flight planning, and what to expect from air traffic controllers during flight. The academic classes will encompass ground school, ATC airspace, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Lab (UAS), as well as pilot knowledge of aerodynamics, time, speed, distance, fuel usage computations, and the basics of route planning.
The program will also focus on a “capstone” cross-country flight. When students earn their “wings” at the end of the program, it will be a result of student efforts during the week, and a model of the skills needed to be a pilot. Students will be flying during day and evening hours, and are required to wear closed-toed shoes and long pants during their flight times.
We will host a graduation lunch on the last day of the program, which parents/families are welcome and encouraged to attend.*Flight hours and locations are not guaranteed due to unforeseen circumstances, such as weather. In the event of a cancelled flight, we will do our best to modify remaining flights and adjust the schedule to accommodate previously scheduled flight time.
* The University follows TSA regulations. International students will be able to participate in flying our aircraft, but will not be able to log their hours.
