With a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Pilot Studies, you will have what modern airline companies want. We have asked them what they need for their future pilots to learn, and our education is based on their answers. Among other things, they want you to learn coordination skills, problem-solving skills, management of aircraft, and they want maturity. In other words, they want highly skilled international commercial pilots – and that is what you will become.
