HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS may begin flight training while still in high school. You have two options:

1. Enroll directly into the Private Pilot Certification Course at American Winds and complete your Private Pilot. Then you may enroll in Liberty University upon completion of the certification and graduation from high school. Liberty will grant you full credit for all private courses (12 credits) and you may begin instrument training. (Students cannot conduct any Instrument training outside of a Liberty University Program and still qualify for the Restricted-ATP (our Dual Enrollment program counts as an approved program).

2.   Enroll in Liberty University’s High School Dual Enrollment program. Here the student can take Liberty’s Private and Instrument courses just as a college student and earn college credit. You are under all the same requirements as a student in the college program (this includes flight fee protocols, assignment requirements, etc.) The advantage to the Dual Enrollment program is you can use those credits towards the 60 credits required for the Restricted-ATP and there is a significant tuition discount. You can find more information on our Dual Enrollment Program here.
