We Are Proud to Provide Flight Training to Students of Vermont State University
Professional Pilot Program
Vermont State University (VTSU) and Vermont Flight Academy (VFA) have a partnership to train professional pilots for an exciting career in Aviation. VTSU’s Williston campus is home to the bachelor-level degree program in aviation, conveniently under 2.5 miles from VFA.
Students in the Professional Pilot program start flying in their first semester and can become Certified Flight Instructors in their junior year. Students graduate with typically 500 or more flight hours already under their belts. That flight time makes graduates highly valued in the industry. VTSU is authorized by the FAA to certify pilot graduates for the Restricted Airline Transport Pilot (RATP). The authorization is highly advantageous as certified graduates can be hired as professional airline pilots that much sooner, creating a fast track to a career doing what they love.
