The OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies School of Aviation Studies partners with airlines across the U.S. to offer pathway programs that give students the opportunity to work toward careers with some of the nation’s largest airlines. These partnerships help qualifying students launch their aviation careers and get into the right seat of a commercial airline sooner.
The programs are open to students in Professional Pilot or Aviation Management – Flying concentrations with a private pilot certificate and provide recruitment, screening, selection, training and placement strategies to cadets—as well as mentorships with current pilots and tuition assistance—as they earn their ratings and ultimately become certified flight instructors for their airline at OU.
The School of Aviation Studies has a rich history of aviation education and training, and these partnerships help the university to continue providing excellent aviation training and flight education for future pilots.
OU currently has cadet partnership agreements with the following airlines:
