The Flight Academy Pilot Training Network has a new cooperation partner – the Aachen University of Applied Sciences
In collaboration with the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, Pilot Training Network is now offering airline pilot training in conjunction with an aeronautical technology bachelor’s degree. The cooperation agreement was signed in Frankfurt today. This cooperation is the fifth of its kind.
Andreas Dietrich, the Managing Director of Pilot Training Network, explains the background to the new academic concentration: “Flexibility and versatility are essential for a career in the aviation industry. That’s why we consistently focus on the combination of our ATPL training with industry-specific studies in order to be able to offer potential future pilots even more options for personal career planning. We are very pleased that, with the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, we have gained a renowned partner for the implementation of our program.” Prof. Peter Dahmann, the Dean of the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, added: “The Aachen University of Applied Sciences is very pleased with this cooperation. Graduates of the dual program will have the best preparation, both for aeronautical activities and for engineering duties.”
The academic training will largely take place in the classrooms of the Aachen University of Applied Sciences. Practical flight training will be conducted in Vero Beach, USA, and at Rostock Airport. Thanks to the dual training form, the length of study is much shorter than with other serial training programs. After just four years, the aviation students will have two professional qualifications and can start a career as either an engineer or a pilot.
The program concludes with a bachelor of engineering (abbreviated as B.Eng.). The course of studies is offered every winter semester. The next course starts in the winter 2015/2016 semester.
