Our aviation program is not theoretical—though it does teach a bit of physics and meteorology. It's a flight program. Once students graduate from Chamberlain or move on to a different education setting, many continue their instruction, having acquired at Chamberlain some of the 40 hours needed to get a pilot's license.
Students attend Alpha One Flight School in nearby Plymouth, Massachusetts. The ground school is relaxed, challenging, and fun. The plan of study is easy to follow and given in a lecture format. The classroom is set up with video training aids, visual aids, a navigation planning table, a computer weather station, and a full classroom for preflight and post-flight briefings. The Private Pilot Part 61 training syllabus allows students to learn at their own pace and the instructor is able to adjust the program to compliment the student pilot’s developing skills. Instruction includes the use of an FAA approved “Elite” simulator for practice on rainy days. Most students who participate in this enrichment course leave with instructional in-flight hours in their pilot's log.
