Since its founding, Embry-Riddle’s Department of Flight has turned people with a passion for aviation into the best pilots in the air. In fact, the flight program was the foundation of ERAU, and it continues to provide the training for all the programs at the university that require flight training.
However, the department doesn’t just train pilots — the training students receive here has always gone above and beyond the FAA requirements. In 1926, the flight school developed what was then called the Master Airman designation. These were not just pilots: They were able to fly airplanes in all conditions, troubleshoot problems that arose, and generally exceed the expectations of regulators in place.

The department has three buildings, a hangar, and more than 60 aircraft — all high-end, electronically supported models. Facilities also include a bank of simulators that includes the highest level of simulations available anywhere. The department has 150 flight instructors, plus 25 technicians performing support and maintenance in the hangar.

ERAU’s Department of Flight continues to be the provider of choice for professional pilots. Most graduates become professional airline pilots or have careers flying other commercial, private, or military aircraft. Some, however, minor in flight while enrolled in other programs.

However, all students are held to the same high standards of performance. The Department of Flight doesn’t just teach the nuts and bolts of flying; students learn what it means to be professional, to be safety conscious, and to have the right ethical foundation to be a great professional pilot.
