LSUA’s Professional Aviation students continue to exemplify professionalism and achievement, with several successfully completing their private pilot licenses. Currently, 33 students are enrolled in the rapidly growing program.

Last week, the LSUA Professional Aviation program hosted a highly successful open house event, attended by 20 prospective students. This event was generously hosted by Million Air at England Airpark, with participation from LSUA’s flight training partner, Gulf Coast Aviation. The open house featured tours of the training planes and opportunities for prospective students to engage with current students and instructors, gaining valuable insights into the program.

The program’s growth is evident, with 18 new students already enrolled for the fall semester, bringing the total enrollment to over 50 students. In response to this rapid expansion, Gulf Coast Aviation has recently added a fourth training plane to its fleet, further enhancing the training capabilities of the program.

The success and growth of LSUA’s Professional Aviation program have garnered significant support from the local community. This week, LSUA proudly announced the establishment of the George M. Simmons Jr. Post 3 of the American Legion Aviation Scholarship, dedicated to benefiting aviation students within the College of Natural Sciences & Mathematics. The endowed scholarship, fully funded at $25,000, was presented by Post Commander Craig Phillips and Second Vice Commander William Velk. This generous endowment aims to support one or more students each semester in their pursuit of an aviation degree.
