Proud Partners of the Community College of Baltimore County

      Middle River Aviation is a proud partner of the Community College of Baltimore County. If you are looking for a career in aviation as a pilot, there is no better place to start than Middle River Aviation and CCBC. In this day in age, the airlines are in desperate need of pilots as the industry expands and the pilot shortage continues to grow. In order to qualify for these positions, a prospective student must first meet some basic requirements. You will need at a minimum, an Associate Degree, the appropriate FAA Pilot Certificates, and the required number of flight hours to be eligible for hire by the airlines. All of which can be accomplished with MRA and CCBC.

     Getting started is easy. Once you have enrolled in CCBC through their online portal, you will be able to meet with their specialist in order to apply for student loans, grants, or Veteran’s funding. The Aviation degree program is a two-year program that starts either in September or February, depending on when you enroll. There are four semesters that will coincide with your Baltimore flight training. First semester will be a Private Pilot course. Once that's completed, you will be ready to take an FAA check ride to get your pilot’s license. The second semester will be an Instrument Rating course. The third and fourth semesters will be focused on gaining a commercial pilot certificate as well as a certified flight instructor certificate. Although these courses are broken down into semesters, you will still be able to fly through the entire year. This enables you to complete all your flight training in the same time it takes to complete your degree.
