Course summary

**Course overview**- Combine the practical and theoretical aspects of flying with the underlying principles of aerospace engineering on our Aerospace Engineering with Pilot Studies Foundation Entry Degree course.- Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.- Gain the theoretical training required to obtain a pilot’s license while simultaneously gaining an engineering degree.- The University has excellent aerospace facilities including a full motion simulator and several flight training devices, allowing you to benefit from the practical application of theories taught in the classroom. Configure them to aircraft types such as civil aircraft, helicopters and even the Space Shuttle.**Why study with us**- You’ll undertake ‘Private Pilot License (PPL)’ theoretical studies in your 2nd year.- Fine tune your practical skills using the University’s excellent flight simulators.- You’ll get involved with unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for civil applications.**Further Information** - You’re responsible for finding your own placement. The Faculty Placement Team and University of Central Lancashire Careers Team will support you, helping you to plan and develop your CV and applications. They also hold practice interviews.- Placements are an invaluable opportunity to help consolidate your first two years of learning, gain experience, and radically enhance your employability. Experience gained during a placement often leads to improved final year performance and is of real benefit when you’re competing for graduate jobs.- This degree programme does not include the practical flying components of the PPL (typically 45 hours). Practical flying is not an essential component in order to complete the programme.
