If you have a dream of learning to fly, Central Christian College of Kansas can help you soar. There is always a demand for college-trained personnel in all areas of aviation. Our program helps to meet this demand.

The Aviation program prepares students for vocational work in the field of aviation. Enrollment provides engagement in airport operations, flight logistics, ground maintenance and other vital aviation operations, thus allowing students to expand their credentials in this growing field. Graduates of our program entered careers in charter services, missionary aviation, flight instruction, and operate as corporate and commercial pilots.

Currently, CCCK offers two distinct flight training opportunities:

  • Online/Hybrid Program (Lakeland, FL): In partnership with International Aero Academy students may engage an accelerated flight program, while concurrently completing academic coursework through CCCK's virtual campus. Through this program, students begin online coursework while also seeking certification as a flight instructor through IAA. Once certified, students can work with the International Aero Academy as a flight instructor (logging needed hours), while completing remaining academic requirements online. Request More Information or Apply today. This degree may also be completed in conjunction with any FAA approved flight program or certification.  
  • Residential Program (McPherson. KS): Students wanting to pursue basic flight training, as part of their collegiate experience, may do so through on-campus flight training offered in partnership with the McPherson Airport and Hesston College.
