As the Asia Pacific region faces an estimated need for more than 250,000 new pilots over the next 20 years, Embry-Riddle has teamed with Singapore Airlines to provide a one-of-a-kind, joint-campus, two-continent degree program.
The new flight minor, which launched in June, provides flight training to Embry-Riddle Asia Campus students and establishes a pathway to potential commercial pilot jobs at Singapore Airlines.
Students will fulfill academic requirements for a B.S. in Aeronautics at the Asia Campus in Singapore, and then spend their final year in the United States at Embry-Riddle’s campus in Daytona Beach, Florida, as part of an accelerated flight training program.
Upon completion of flight training and possession of a commercial pilot certificate with instrument and multi-engine ratings, the students will return to Singapore to complete the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore licensing requirements and to interview for potential employment with Singapore Airlines.
