AE 3200 - Private Pilot Flight Training

Credits can be granted to students who obtain the FAA-issued license for private pilot, Aircraft Single-Engine Land (ASEL) or helicopter. More advanced FAA-issued ratings such as instrument, instructor, instrument instructor, and multi-engine are acceptable, but cannot be used to obtain additional credit. To obtain the credits, students must bring their pilot’s log book(s) and their pilot’s license to the cognizant Aerospace Engineering faculty member for approval. Credit for a pilot’s license is offered to enhance the traditional Aerospace Engineering curricula with practical study. Therefore, credit for this course will only be granted to students who have declared an undergraduate major in Aerospace Engineering. Students eligible for this credit must either obtain their license or advanced rating while a WMU undergraduate student, or maintain legal currency by completing a documented annual or biennial proficiency check while enrolled with a declared major in Aerospace Engineering. The cognizant faculty member for pilot training activities is currently Professor Peter A. Gustafson. Inquiries should be directed to him.

Credits: 3 hours

Restrictions: Restricted to majors in Aerospace Engineering.
