Flight Laboratory Time SlotsOSU student and instructor

Students enrolled in the Professional Pilot Specialization complete their flight training at The Ohio State University Airport and choose the flight slots that are most compatible with their class schedule. A flight slot is either 1.5 or 2 hours long, five days a week with opportunities to fly on weekends. A student’s flight slot is held at the same time each day with the same instructor.  

Students who are incoming to the Professional Pilot Specialization will apply for a flight slot the semester before they intend to start training.  Once their application has been reviewed, a staff member will contact them to choose a flight slot that compliments their campus course schedule.  

Those students who have already started their flight training with OSU will meet with the staff of the flight school in person to schedule their time slot for the following semster.
