Did you know the University of Oklahoma is the nation’s No. 1 college-based flight school? OU solidified this top ranking with a $10 million expansion to accommodate hundreds of more students.
Currently, there are over 14,500 open pilot positions. In only 10 years, a shortfall of 80,000 trained pilots is projected. The School of Aviation Studies will move to a new academic home in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Studies and merge the No. 1 aviation program with the nation’s No. 1 meteorology program.
This synergy among aviation, meteorology and geography allows all three to grow their degree opportunities.
