Flight Training at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
The Embry-Riddle flight training program provides the actual hands-on flight experience segment for our four-year Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Science degree.
The Embry-Riddle Advantage
Our approach to aviation education gives our students The Embry-Riddle Edge — added value over other collegiate flight training programs — an edge that lands our students the best jobs in the aviation industry.
Real World Flight Training & Procedures
The flight program at Embry-Riddle is more than just a way to earn ratings; it is a true professional pilot course. Students fly in an airline or corporate-style environment. They are professionally dispatched and supervised and use flight procedures that closely resemble those of the airlines.
Our Program Uses High-Tech Simulation & Technology
The program incorporates state-of-the-art simulation from the very beginning. Academic classroom lessons taught by experienced Aeronautical Science professors provide the foundation of knowledge and experience required of professional pilots. Students first learn to verbalize the required flight knowledge in detailed oral sessions with an instructor followed by initial practice in realistic — full visual — flight simulators (flight training devices). Finally, they move to the aircraft to validate what they have learned.
