TSU to Offer Pilot School Ground Course
With the recent Air Agency Certificate issued by the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration to Texas Southern University’s School of Aviation Science and Technology, TSU became the only four-year state supported university in Texas to offer FAA approved Pilot Ground School Course for its students.
Captain Roscoe Edwards, a retired airline pilot, pilot examiner and instructor, will lead the instruction of the ground school course and simulator training. Edwards is also tasked with monitoring the flight training which will be conducted at Hobby Airport and Ellington Field.
After completion of the pilot ground school course, which is a concentrated course of the Aviation Management degree program, students will obtain their private pilot license – the first sequence in obtaining a commercial pilot’s license which is needed to become a certified flight instructor.
