The aeronautics program at Charleston Southern University, launched a year ago, has achieved designation as a Part 141 pilot school this fall.

Federal Aviation Administration-certificated pilot schools are regulated in accordance with Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations part 141, according to the FAA. “Part 141 pilot schools are required to use a structured training program and syllabus,” the agency’s website says. “Part 141 pilot schools may be able to provide a greater variety of training aids and require dedicated training facilities, flight instructor oversight, and FAA-approved course curricula. Colleges and universities, which may offer aviation degrees, often provide pilot training under part 141.”

Charleston Southern University is the only institution in the state to offer a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics, according to a university news release. Prior to CSU establishing the program, South Carolina was one of only two states without a collegiate aeronautics program.
