Commercial Pilot Track
The Commercial Pilot track prepares you for an exhilarating career as an airline pilot flying some of the world’s largest aircraft around the world.
Fast Track into Airline Employment
Jacksonville University, along with L3 Airline Academy, has been training some of the industry’s best pilots since 1996. Our flight school produces first officer candidates for the industry’s most successful regional airlines, who fly the most sophisticated jet aircraft. At our flight school you are trained to become a professional pilot from day one!
L3 Airline Academy
JU’s partnership with L3 Airline Academy makes us distinct, providing true airline-oriented flight training that only an airline can design. Our success is primarily due to the high quality airline standardized training curriculum we provide. Our training models flight training set by our partner airlines ensuring that your training exceeds the highest quality standards.
Fly Right Away
At JU, flight training begins immediately. Two weeks into your freshman year, you are scheduled a training activity three times a week – on the ground, in the air, or in our state-of-the art flight training devices. JU’s aviation program is small by design, with a teacher-to-student ratio that ensures individual attention.
The flight training we provide is highly specialized and complemented by JU’s world-class business school. Not to mention, that our degree plan offers a faster route to a professional cockpit than other pilot training tracks. With hard work, you could earn all your certificates and ratings in the first two years at JU. And remember: we’re in Florida. We fly in great weather year round!
98% Placement Rate into Airline Careers
After gaining experience in flight training, you may choose to get qualified as a flight instructor. JU students who graduate and complete their employment phase as flight instructors with L3 Airline Academy are guaranteed and interview with a top-tier regional airline, such as American Eagle, ASA, Comair Airlines, and Chautauqua Airlines. 98% of those JU students interviewed are hired by regional carriers.
