Aviation and Business Management (Pilot Manned)
The Bachelor of Science in Aviation and Business Management (Pilot Manned)* program is offered by the Robert L. Tillman School of Business in partnership with the UMO Flight School. This degree prepares graduates with the knowledge and skills in business management strategies while training them in flight safety, government regulation, security, and various other practical areas of aviation. Courses will be available in both seated and online formats. The Pilot Manned degree requires flight hours that will be earned in conjunction with the UMO Flight School housed at the Mount Olive Municipal Airport. As a result of flight hours required, students in the Pilot Manned program will be assessed fees in addition to tuition. UMO also offers a Pilot Unmanned degree.
The Pilot Manned program allows students opportunities to earn three certifications and two aviation ratings. Students enrolled in the Pilot Manned degree program will have the opportunity to earn a private pilot certificate, an instrument rating, and a commercial pilot certificate during the freshman and sophomore years. During the junior year, students have the opportunity to earn a certified flight instructor certificate and a multi-engine rating. By earning these certifications and ratings, along with a bachelor’s degree, graduates gain a unique competitive edge. The University of Mount Olive is the only private college in NC offering the combined aviation and business management programs.
The UMO Flight School received the Part 141 FAA Certification (provisional for 2 years). At the end of that time, if an 80% pass rate is maintained, then the certification becomes permanent. This automatically implies that the aircraft, facilities, and curriculum have been FAA approved and the Aviation and Business Management program leads to becoming a professional pilot.
