Aircraft Pilot Training

Thank you for your interest in Aircraft Pilot Training Technology at Texas State Technical College Waco. We offer an Associate of Applied Science degree program, with a major in Aircraft Pilot Training Technology. TSTC Waco is fully accredited. Our courses are designed for the career-minded pilot and they thoroughly cover each aspect of flight training. It is possible to complete all academics and achieve the required flight certificates and ratings in approximately two years, with an enhanced skills certificate offered as an additional option. Certificates and ratings attainable are:



  Commercial     Certified Flight Instructor-Instrument 
  Certified Flight Instructor    

  Multi-Engine and Multi-Engine Instructor 

New students start in the fall. Before entering the program, they are required to complete a Class II Medical exam, college entrance exams, and any required remediation. Additionally, acceptance into TSTC does not mean acceptance into the APT Program. Due to the high demand for pilot training, an additional application packet is necessary to be completed and presented to the Department Chair for review by a selection board. Applicants will be notified if they have been selected for the fall class start date by mid-summer. For those who have completed certificates prior to enrollment at TSTC, credit can be earned for flying time documented by logbooks, as well as credit for college courses that are equivalent to those offered at TSTC (as per FAR 141 Regulations). To begin the medical application process, go to  https://medxpress.faa.gov/. If you need help finding a physician, a helpful link is http://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/.

As part of the only state-supported technical college system in Texas, our fees are competitive with similar programs. The Aircraft Pilot Training program is a member of the National Intercollegiate Flying Association.

In addition to Aircraft Pilot Training, TSTC offers the following programs approved by the Federal Aviation Administration: Aircraft Dispatch, Air Traffic Control, Avionics and Aviation Maintenance.

Please consider this a personal invitation to you, your family and friends to visit our Aircraft Pilot Training program at Texas State Technical College. We look forward to visiting with you to evaluate your current educational credits and/or flight experience.

We are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you have any questions, or would like to schedule a visit, please contact us by calling (254) 867-2604 or e-mailing.
