Students electing to obtain their flight certificates through the Burton D. Morgan School of Aeronautics must place a $2,000 deposit on their flight training account specifically for flight training prior to beginning flight training in each certificate. Students may use this deposit to cover flight training costs. The student does not need to keep the full deposit amount on account. Any portion of the flight training deposit not used for flight training is fully refundable.
The curriculum lists the flight theory and related flight training course work in the first two years.
Students are not bound by this schedule and may complete their ratings at any time prior to graduation. However, students should schedule their flight training courses to coincide with the related ground school courses and should note that not all ground school and flight training courses are available every semester.
A new Flight Option student who already has a pilot’s certificate and rating(s) can apply for and receive credit for equivalent courses in the curriculum. However, prior to the award of any credit, the chief flight instructor will administer the standard Part 141 diagnostic evaluation to determine whether any review (ground school or flight) is necessary. The flight school director has final authority over all flight-related credit awards. Students enrolling in Lynn University and pursuing pilot certificates and ratings outside the university’s flight program will not receive credit for any equivalent flight courses in the curriculum.
Students are required to obtain personal liability coverage to protect them from liability costs that may occur as a result of operating an aircraft. No student will be allowed to fly until proof of liability coverage is placed in the student’s record at Lynn University.
