its saying you earn ppl through commercial with an associates degree.
Partially true, then you get the other stuff the next two years. Probably the most important is the advanced systems knowledge, the advanced meteorology theory and a litany of other things. Even being the most inexperienced guy in 2 of my 3 initials at my first airline, and being hired with a mere 550 hours, I was doing most of the explaining how the actual systems are working. I was far from the smartest guy in class at Purdue.
You leave the program in the following condition if you do the bare minimum:
AAS and BS from Purdue University (Most people recognize a BS from Purdue.)
FE ticket (if they still do that)
10 hours in a KingAir (gratis....the airplanes are used for university transportation. The professors are the Captains)
the best thing you can do is call them. call the department of aviation technology and ask them their fleet, whats the student/instructor ratio, do they offer jobs to instructors on sight, blah blah, and, most importantly, do they offer credit for ratings, which can save you a lot of $ if you were to go ahead and get as many as possible. do you have any ratings thus far?
I don't know what the student fleet ratio is, but the total number of admissions is based on the number of students they can handle. My class 1994-1998 was about 60 people.
I got my CFIAIM via the local FBO, I can't remember if I got credit or not.
However, to be an instructor for Purdue, one needs to have completed the 2 year program, and be a student in the professional flight program.
Also, do some searching and learn about the instructors and the history of the program. They did all the stuff the others have started doing.
There are negatives to the program too, but everyone will point those out in short order. Unless they went there, it's BS.
