Fly with us
We’ve been training pilots in Texas for more than 50 years, and we offer several key advantages. At TSTC, your classroom will be a dual runway airport with an operational control tower at the largest airport in the U.S. operated by an educational institution.
All of our instructors are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). They bring high levels of professional aviation experience from civil and military backgrounds. Our airport and seasoned instructors make TSTC the right place to train to become a pilot.
TSTC offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in Aircraft Pilot Training (fixed-wing.) Upon completing your degree, you will become certified as a flight instructor or a commercial multi-engine pilot. It’s your choice! Our program goes beyond the basics by focusing on safety and professionalism, in addition to skill.
The Aircraft Pilot Training (APT) program at Texas State Technical College in Waco employs additional minimum requirements beyond the college application for admission into the program. Review the requirements carefully. Additional information can be found in the Informational Download section.
