Don't wing it.
Know your options.

With more than 12.1 million annual take-offs and landings, the aviation industry is booming in Texas. We’ll help your career to lift off.

Get your career off the ground.

Dating back to 1968, TSTC’s Aircraft Pilot Training program offers you several unique advantages: top-notch equipment, a dual runway operational control tower and the largest airport in the U.S. operated by an educational institution. Our commitment to your success means your instructors are FAA-certified and bring hundreds of years of combined professional aviation experience from both civil and military aviation backgrounds.

You can choose from two Associate of Applied Science degrees: Fixed-wing (airplane) and Rotary (helicopter). After completing your degree, you can become certified as a flight instructor to rack up airtime flight hours more quickly. If you have an aviation background and you’re set on a path to enter the workforce in less time, TSTC offers certifications in Commercial Pilot-Helicopter and Multi-Engine Aircraft Pilot.


Requirements to enter the Aircraft Pilot Training programs differ from those of other programs. Be sure to read the program requirements for the Aircraft Pilot Training program before enrolling.
