Airborne-Flight Training 06.03.20: Combo-Av Degree, USAF Goes Short, UND Restart

Beginning this Fall, the Liberty University School of Aeronautics will offer a versatile new degree that combines flight training and maintenance.

The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Technology provides students with the requirements needed to pursue their commercial pilot license and aviation mechanic certification. Steven Brinly, chair of aerospace technology, said the degree is unique because it qualifies students in both areas in four years rather than the more traditional five-year track for the combined degree. “By combining these two areas into a single degree, we are providing our students with a diverse set of skills that will enable them to both fly and maintain aircraft,” said Brinly. Liberty’s School of Aeronautics is one of only a few in the nation to offer this type of degree. As part of the Air Force’s on-going effort to encourage a more diverse pool of applicants to pursue careers in aviation, the minimum height requirement for officer applicants who wish to fly has been removed as of May 13. While still preserving safety of flight, the policy adjustment prevents initial applicants who are below 64 inches or above 77 inches in height from requiring an accessions waiver. “We’re really focused on identifying and eliminating barriers to serve in the Air Force,” said Gwendolyn DeFilippi, assistant deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services. As the University of North Dakota launches its 2020 Summer Sessions, UND Interim President Joshua Wynne and incoming President Andy Armacost has announced a phased plan to resume student flight training. The restart plan calls for some students to have already resumed flight training. But, because of the phased-nature of the restart, UND Aerospace urges students NOT to return to campus until notified by UND Flight Operations of their targeted start date. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
