North Shore Community College is making changes!
You can start your application today! As always, there is no cost to apply to North Shore Community College.
For Fall 2020, most of NSCC's courses will be virtual – including online, hybrid, and videoconference – to ensure our community's safety and maintain social distancing. Targeted courses that need to occur face-to-face on campus will occur predominantly in lab based classes, using social distancing protocols.
Train to become a professional pilot and watch your career take flight
NSCC’s Aviation Science Professional Pilot program prepares graduates for careers as professional pilots. It begins at the private pilot level, and prior experience is not required for admission. Students with previously earned FAA flight certificates and ratings may receive academic credit through advanced standing. The program combines classroom instruction and flight training in both aircraft and an FAA-approved ground simulator (Advanced Aviation Training Device). NSCC requires all students to obtain a minimum of an FAA Second Class Medical Certificate prior to acceptance in the program.
Job opportunities as professional pilots include employment with:
- Regional and commercial airlines
- Corporate and general aviation
- Government agencies such as the military and the FAA
Tuition, fees and program costs
Total costs for flight training are approximately $41,890. See a full breakdown of flight training fees
