A university degree is becoming an increasingly appealing option for junior pilots, since it offers them a second mainstay alongside a flying career.
This kind of program can open up career opportunities in airline management and offer a fallback plan in the event that a pilot becomes unable to fly for medical reasons, for example.
With all this in mind, InterCockpit , a company of Pilot Training Network GmbH, has teamed up with Hochschule fur Technik und Wirtschaft des Saarlandes (HTW), a university of applied sciences, to offer a dual program of vocational training and an academic degree for junior pilots. It combines training as an airline pilot (ATPL) with the academic program "Aviation Business - Piloting and Airline Management." The dual program, which takes six semesters to complete, teaches participants commercial and technical knowledge as well as specific skills for use in the aviation sector.
