The SBBCollege Aviation School
If you’ve ever had a dream of flying professionally – for the thrill, the adventure, the sense of purpose and prestige – now is the time to turn it into a reality. Due to many factors, including the looming retirement of a generation of pilots in the U.S., and the growth of air travel markets around the world, there is a projected shortage and a growing need for commercial pilots over the next 10 years.*
Our accelerated Associate of Science in Aviation degree program exists to meet that need – and to get you ready for a rewarding career in aviation, fast.
Delivered at our Ventura campus, at the SBBCollege Aviation Pilot Education Center at Camarillo Airport - and in the perfect skies of Southern California - it offers a thorough, high-quality preparation for a career as a commercial pilot.
For those looking to study aviation in the Bakersfield area, our sister institution California Aeronautical University located at Bakersfield International Airport offers programs designed to help those looking for careers as professional pilots, including:
- Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics
- Associate of Science in Aviation Studies
- Professional Pilot Certificate
