The Department of Aviation can help you "earn your wings" or prepare you for a career in a non-flight area of the incredibly diverse aeronautics industry.

Our department offers the largest collegiate Flight School in the Northeast Region and the only SUNY school to offer four-year degrees in Aviation.

Farmingdale State College has its very own Aviation Flight Center which is the primary hub for flight training and features advanced aviation training devices. Our fleet consists of 17 aircraft that the College owns and operates. The Aviation Flight Center is less than 2 miles from the main campus, making it easy to get to.

Outside the Classroom

Students who are enthusiastic about the aviation industry are welcome to join student chapters of professional aviation organizations: The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) as well as Alpha Eta Rho, the professional aviation organization that prepares the aviation leaders of tomorrow.
