An increasing demand for pilots in the commercial sector coupled with a desire to expand its curriculum have prompted Valparaiso University’s College of Business to add an aviation program to start in the fall of 2017.
VU will partner with Eagle Aircraft, based at the Porter County Regional Airport, to offer varying levels certification for pilots.
Tom Cedel, distinguished visiting professor and a retired Air Force pilot, is assisting in the creation of this program. Cedel said several factors have come together to make it not only possible, but advantageous.
He said the Federal Aviation Administration now allows for certification of pilots with fewer flight hours.
