UMO Flight School

The University of Mount Olive introduces the first North Carolina-based private university flight school. The sky’s the limit! Flight training is conducted in-house by UMO’s flight instructors using university aircraft at the Mount Olive Municipal Airport, located at 227 MO Airport Road, Mount Olive, NC 28365. Students in the flight program can concentrate on three areas:

Pilot’s License

This 40 hour pilot’s license program allows pilots to travel almost anywhere in the world. They can take friends on a weekend trip or simply sight-see from above.

Instrument Rating

With an additional 40 hours of flying time and certification, a student can achieve the instrument rating. This instrument rating allows pilots to fly in instrument meteorological conditions, such as clouds and high altitudes.

Commercial License

A total of 250 hours of flying time is required for the commercial license, including commercial maneuvers. This license allows pilots to be paid for their time.

Once a student achieves commercial rating, he or she can work towards becoming a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI-CFII).
