Message from the dean 
Lynn offers the best preparation for an aviation career anywhere in the world, whether you’re flying or on the ground. Because we’re a liberal arts school, you’ll graduate an educated person; your training as a pilot will be an extraordinary bonus.

There are three pillars to your aeronautics education at Lynn:

Airport management—General aviation, air traffic control, real estate operations

Airline management—Commercial transporter, ground crew, aviation marketing

Fixed-base operations—Maintenance, repair, catering, fueling

And, of course, you’ll also be flying. With a student-teacher ratio of 15:1, you’ll achieve your ratings more quickly than in larger programs, where it’s common to wait a whole year for your first flight. At Lynn, our goal is to have freshmen flying in only two weeks, flying solo by winter break.

If you dream of earning your wings, I invite you to learn more about the College of Aeronautics. 

Jeffrey Johnson 
Dean

With only 75 aviation students admitted at a time, Burton D. Morgan College of Aeronautics offers scholars unrivaled personal attention and internship opportunities. As a student in this flight school, you’ll have many opportunities to learn by doing, from hands-on learning—like flight simulators, logging real flight time and taking off-campus field trips—to a variety of aviation-related clubs, organizations and activities. Join a national aviation fraternity or a professional and industry-specific organization, and put your skills to use.
