The Aviation Professional Pilot Emphasis prepares students for employment with airlines as well as private and corporate operators. Once students are ready to fly, ramp personnel assist students in removing aircraft from the hangar and refueling. UVU graduates are employed by U.S. and International airlines, cargo carriers, and corporate flight departments.
UVU stands out as the top choice for students seeking an excellent safety record, rigorous flight training and great career placement. UVU operates the safest and most advanced training aircraft fleet in the world. This includes the Diamond DA20 Katana, DA40 Diamond Star, and the DA42 Twin Star (a performance twin-engine aircraft.) The all-Diamond fleet offers advantages in safety and maintenance costs which are reflected in our competitive aircraft rental rates. Our fleet of 23 aircraft allows training in "glass cockpit" (computerized instruments) and is maintained in our own FAA part 145 repair station, which no other school offers.
