Aviation Learning Community

Do you have a passion for flying? Join the Mavericks in Flight: Aviation Learning Community to assist with the difficult courses that are part of the Aviation major. You can choose to live with other aviation majors, and regardless of your living arrangements, you will have the opportunity to connect with other students who have the same goal of being a future airline pilot. Immerse yourself through study sessions, faculty interactions and other engaging activities. With this learning community, you will be able to learn more about yourself while discovering how to be a successful airline pilot.

Where you'll Live

We encourage you to live on campus with others in your Learning Community because that's where much of your networking takes place, but it is not required.

You can choose to live:

  • In designated Learning Community housing
    • Renovated double rooms located in Crawford A, B, D, McElroy E, F, H or Preska I Halls.  Renovated rooms have in-room air-conditioning and share a community bathroom with the floor.
    • You can choose to have another Learning Community student assigned as your roommate, or you may choose your own.
  • Other on-campus housing
    • It will be your responsibility to choose a housing location after the time-slot provided to you by Residential Life.
  • Off-campus
