1000-Hour Aviation Certificate
EKU is one of many US Aviation universities that offer the new FAA restricted Airline Transport Pilot (R-ATP) authorization, as part of their commercial pilot curriculum.
However, EKU is the only university offering either 100 or 150 multi-engine flight hours as part of that commercial pilot training.
At the end of this one-of-kind EKU flight plan, the “1000-hour power” certificate awaits all students willing to apply themselves.
Along with this “ticket” to the airlines at 1000 hours versus waiting for 1500 total aircraft hours, all EKU aviation students also earn their “Wings of Gold,” also prominently displayed on this 1000-hour certificate.
