Flight Operations students receive pilot licenses

Ongoing classroom instruction, FTD
practice, and self-study keep the students'
flying skills sharp.

The fourth-year students in J. F. Oberlin’s Flight Operations Course have returned to Japan from New Zealand, where they finished two years of flight training. All twelve of the students obtained New Zealand qualifications (private pilot licenses, commercial pilot licenses, and multi-engine instrument ratings) as well as Japanese qualifications (commercial pilot licenses and multi-engine instrument ratings).

Now that they are back home, these students will concentrate on finding jobs as pilots while at the same time maintaining their flying skills through seminars and use of the Flight Training Device.
