Traveling on a commercial airplane is one of the safest means of transportation. It's much safer than traveling on the highway, in a car or bus, or traveling by train or boat. One of the reasons air travel is so safe are the procedures put in place by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the training that pilots receive. If you're considering a career as a pilot, it may interest you to know these facts about runway safety for pilots.
There are many things that the FAA takes into account when it comes to runway safety. Runways aren't just used by commercial and private aircraft; there are luggage vehicles, fueling tanks and maintenance vehicles that can be located on or near the runway. The FAA looks at "runway collision accidents, runway excursion accidents, taxiway collision accidents, runway incursion incidents, and taxiway surface incidents'' when accessing runway safety.
The Aviation Flight program at Spartan College trains students for 6 FAA certifications and ratings*. This program, which lasts as few as 17 months, features a combination of in-plane and classroom training. The program teaches students to safely and efficiently perform flight duties as well as gives them the information they need to successfully complete their required FAA written examinations. The program, which is taught at the College's Tulsa location, includes modules on Private Pilot Certification, Instrumentation Rating, Commercial, and Certified Flight Instructor (CFI).
The Aviation Flight program at Spartan College is designed to equip students with the skills and experience they need to earn multiple Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 141 pilot certifications and ratings*. Graduates of the program may also apply to continue their education with Spartan College's Bachelor of Science in Technology Management program, as well as apply to work as a Certified Flight Instructor.
Spartan College uses instructors from various backgrounds in its Aviation Flight program. Some have worked for major airlines and/or flown military aircraft.
