Prepare for success in the field of aeronautics with a degree from Liberty University. As one of the largest faith-based collegiate aviation programs in North America, our School of Aeronautics will train you with the skills to lead in the aviation field.


Become a pilot or an unmanned aerial systems operator through our residential B.S. in Aeronautics. Or, as an online student, get a B.S. in Aviation degree through our Flight Training Affiliate program. Both degrees are FAA approved for the 1000-hour Restricted Air Transport Pilot program.

Our Center for Autonomous Systems & Machines (CASM) creates partnerships with organizations, so students can conduct research directly with industry professionals.


Experienced faculty who are grounded in their faith will help you develop the skills you need for leadership and success in whatever field you choose.


Or, get a B.S. in Aviation Administration and prepare for an exciting career in airport management, airline operations, aviation business or government, and a host of other professions in the aerospace industry.

Safety is Our Number One Priority

Our safety reporting system is available to both students and instructors. It offers the ability to report anything you witness or experience that may be inconsistent with our safety standards, whether it be in flight, during ground operations or an observation on the airport ramp. You can choose to remain anonymous during the completion of the form. The more information you can provide about the issue, the better we can help to address it.
