Liberty University Online Academy (LUOA) provides a unique opportunity for students to study aviation while they’re still enrolled in high school! Through the A La Carte option of LUOA’s Dual Enrollment program, 11th- and 12th-grade students are invited to take online college courses offered by Liberty University while partnering with one of our many approved flight training affiliates across the nation. These accredited courses can award both high school and college credit and are offered at discounted prices.
LUOA offers up to 28 hours of aviation (AVIA) credit through Dual Enrollment courses.* In addition to AVIA 105, an introductory course that covers
the basics of aviation, the following courses can be dual-enrolled:
AVIA 220 – Private Flight 1
AVIA 216 – Private Ground
AVIA 225 – Private Flight 2**
AVIA 310 – Instrument Ground
AVIA 320 – Instrument Flight
AVIA 227 – Introduction to Risk Management
AVIA 230 – Unmanned Aerial Systems
AVIA 245 – Aviation Leadership
*AVIA courses are only available for the A La Carte option of Dual Enrollment. Under this option, students are allotted up to 36 credit hours of college courses.
**Students must have a private pilot license (PPL) before enrolling in AVIA 227, AVIA 310, and AVIA 320. In addition, you are only able to fly during daylight hours.
Take flight courses in full-semester terms.
The amount of work required is best suited for the A term unless a student lives right by the Flight Training Affiliate (FTA).
The 8-week schedule will often require between 3-5 different activities per week at the FTA.
Having enough flight instructors available to follow an 8-week schedule can sometimes be difficult.
Weather can sometimes affect flight schedules. Be sure you plan accordingly and fulfill your required hours.
