Skyborne is partnering with Purdue University Global to offer its pilots faster and more flexible online learning and flight training options through a bachelor’s degree in professional flight.

The degree program is taught online and can be completed in less than three years. This accelerated pathway offers the potential to save up to $28,400 on the total cost of a degree from Purdue Global and allows trainees to work full time as a flight instructor during their degree program. To enrol in the program, Skyborne trainees must hold a Private Pilot Certificate (PPL), first-class medical certificate, and either a high school diploma or General Education Development (GED) qualification.

Captain Ed Davidson, Managing Director, Skyborne, says: “Having a bachelor’s degree in addition to an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Certificate broadens the range of airline prospects for pilots at the beginning of their career. The Purdue Global degree program supports our mission to place our graduates in the most advantageous position possible for embarking on the path to becoming an airline pilot.”

The next program start date for the Purdue Global professional flight degree is 19 October. Please visit Skyborne’s website to find out more information.
