Saint Louis University’s Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology was the first federally certified flight school in the nation and has been educating top professionals in aviation for almost 90 years. Parks College continues to lead the way in aviation with two undergraduate programs (flight science and aviation management), as well as both Master’s and Ph.D. programs in aviation.
From the planes we fly (Diamond, Piper and Cirrus) to the complex and dynamic air space we train in, Parks College gives students a one-of-a-kind education and prepares them to become leaders in the aviation industry. As the only Catholic Jesuit university in the United States to offer aviation programs, our students are encouraged to ask the important “whys” needed to become successful and ethical pilots. They are also taught to be critical thinkers and problem-solvers. This, combined with infinite opportunities and thriving student life, is what makes the Parks experience, and our students, so well-rounded.
