Dave Young, Brig. Gen. USAF (Ret)
Dean, School of Aeronautics
Liberty University’s Department of Aviation is proud to announce that we are now the Liberty University School of Aeronautics. The formation of Liberty’s School of Aeronautics out of the Department of Aviation is a logical step based on our outstanding growth.
Within the last ten years, we have grown from four students to over four hundred in our accredited, FAA-certified aviation program to become one of the two largest Christian university aviation programs in America.
We are approved to train and certify everyone from private pilots to airline transport pilots through an intensive four-year academic program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics. Within the last two years we have introduced an aircraft maintenance training program and as of Fall 2011 we now offer a concentration in Unmanned Aerial Systems which will allow our program to stay up to date with the growing aviation industry.
