Get into a Fun and Exciting Career

TVCC's Aviation Science program provides quick entry into an often daunting field. Our hands-on training allows you to become a professional fixed-wing or helicopter pilot, enabling you to begin a career as soon as you complete the degree. After building your initial experience as a flight instructor and as a graduate, you may find excellent employment with cargo transport, scenic tours, or in small-scale operations.  Continue to move on and become a commercial pilot.

TVCC conducts all aspects of Private Pilot training in-house and works with Silverhawk Aviation Academy to offer all other flight training.

TVCC's Aviation Science program allows you to fly within weeks of enrollment. When you're ready to begin, you'll be assigned a flight instructor with whom you can develop a flight training schedule. Our unique partnership allows you to integrate your training into your schedule.

Our instructors have years of in-flight experience and a real-world common sense about becoming a pilot. We provide a comprehensive orientation for all incoming and interested students. This includes a detailed explanation of what students can expect from the program and industry connections to help you get started in your new career.
