National Flight Centre partners with Dublin City University to offer Aviation Management with Pilot Studies Degree Programme

17th Oct 2021

A new partnership between DCU Business School and the National Flight Centre (NFC) will see DCU students on the Aviation Management with Pilot Studies degree programme be able to complete their professional pilot training with the National Flight Centre.   

Students choosing Pilot Studies as their preferred option on the course can now begin their pilot studies at the start of year 3, which will allow them to complete their B.Sc. and Airline Transport Pilot training within a 4-year period.

DCU Business School, Dr Cathal Guiomard commented “A proportion of DCU aviation management students have always pursued pilot training and the link with NFC will make that easier in the future. In addition, trainee pilots of the NFC will be able to obtain a DCU degree in aviation management, so this partnership will benefit anyone looking for a combined pilot training and aviation management qualification.”

 National Flight Centre, Head of Training, Darragh Owens commented “There is growing international recognition that degree-level studies, combined with professional pilot education and training, can contribute significantly to the quality of candidates entering the airline industry. University experience and qualifications develop analytical skills and encourage a broader personal outlook. These enhance longer-term career prospects for pilots as they transition into management and wider leadership roles, while enriching the contribution of skill and competence they can bring to employers.”
