Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics
Pavco Flight Center is now working hand in hand with Liberty University as a Flight Training Affiliate (FTA). Liberty offers an online Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautics, while completing the flight training portion of your degree here at Pavco. This allows great flexibility to fit online classes and training flights around a busier lifestyle or full time work schedule.
Liberty University is fully accredited and is able to transfer many previous college courses, pilot ratings, and military experience towards college credits. Enrolling with Liberty University at a Flight Training Affiliate allows students to use Federal Financial Aid including scholarships, grants and loans, as well as many other military and VA benefits. This degree may often be accomplished in as little as 2 to 3 years.
Potential career options include: Certified Flight Instructor, Commercial Pilot, Corporate Pilot, Military Pilot, and Missionary Pilot.

Liberty University is VA approved and offers the use of Post 9/11 GI Bill and other VA benefits. Since Liberty University is a college institution of higher education, Veterans in the Puget Sound area that attend Liberty's online school and flight training through Pavco may receive full Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. This includes 100% covered tuition/ flight training costs, monthly housing allowance, and books-and-supplies stipend. Books, written exams, headsets, charts, and check ride costs may be covered.
For Veterans who have a limited amount of eligibility left on their GI Bill, may then apply for Financial Aid to help cover tuition costs. The Post 9/11 GI Bill may also be transferred to spouse or children.
(type 'Liberty University' or 'Pavco Flight Center' under the school field to compare between college level and vocational flight training benefits.)
