Skyborne offers accelerated pathway to earn bachelor’s degree with Purdue University Global

Skyborne is partnering with Purdue University Global to offer its pilots faster and more flexible online learning and flight training options through a bachelor’s degree in professional flight.

The degree program is taught online and can be completed in less than three years. This accelerated pathway offers the potential to save up to $28,400 on the total cost of a degree from Purdue Global and allows trainees to work full time as a flight instructor during their degree program. To enroll in the program, Skyborne trainees must hold a Private Pilot Certificate (PPL), first-class medical certificate, and either a high school diploma or General Education Development (GED) qualification.

Captain Ed Davidson, Managing Director, Skyborne, says: “Our partnership with Purdue Global, part of the Purdue University system that includes its prestigious School of Engineering and Polytechnic Institute, provides a unique opportunity for Skyborne pilots to earn a degree in professional flight. Legendary aviators like Amelia Earhart, Neil Armstrong and Sully Sullenberger once called Purdue University their home.

“Having a bachelor’s degree in addition to an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Certificate broadens the range of airline prospects for pilots at the beginning of their career. The Purdue Global degree program supports our mission to place our graduates in the most advantageous position possible for embarking on the path to becoming an airline pilot.”

Andrew Rachmell, Professional Flight Business Development Specialist for Purdue Global, says: “We are looking forward to welcoming Skyborne trainees to our professional flight degree program. Through this partnership, students joining us from Skyborne will gain a strong command of industry knowledge while maintaining the flexibility to further their flight training. Introducing a faster and more affordable option of higher education for Skyborne’s trainees only adds to the exceptional standard of training and career support the academy offers.”

The next program start date for the Purdue Global professional flight degree is Oct. 19. To learn more, access the link here: https://www.skyborneacademy.com/purdue-university-global/
