Flight Training - Student Profiles
Bridgewater State University Aviation is the leading University Aviation program in New England. We pride ourselves on training professionally-minded safety-oriented pilots on a daily basis. Diverse weather conditions, terrain, and airspace configurations give our students the ability to make the tough pilot-in-command decisions needed to become professional aviators.
A common misconception in the flight training environment is that regions of the U.S. with constantly sunny and temperate conditions are best suited for flight training. We strongly disagree. Our students excel, completing the same rigorous FAA approved training syllabus in the same amount of time as students who train in the fair-weather programs, while gaining invaluable all-weather experience.
Recent events at the regional airlines involving pilots with limited adverse weather experience and basic aerodynamic knowledge have prompted the federal government to make significant changes to the content and flight experience requirements for future pilots. BSU Aviation is closely monitoring these changes and has the "weather advantage" over the fair-weather programs and "pilot factories" that care more about the bottom line and less about producing a safe, proficient and competent pilot.
At BSU, we strongly advise our students to immediately develop a professional attitude about and be aggressive with their flight training schedule. Why? Flying consistently and frequently maintains a higher level of proficiency, which results in more efficient lessons and overall reduced cost. BSU Aviation already provides one of the most cost-effective university flight programs available today. From realistic training cost estimates to free training resources, we do everything we can to help students minimize the cost of flight training.
