Auburn aviation receives FAA flight time exemption

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn University's aviation programs have become the sixth in the nation to receive a Federal Aviation Administration exemption related to training.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports (http://bit.ly/1gqsEjg) that the FAA exemption means the programs are allowed to have lower flight time requirements for aviation graduates.

Aviation students in the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business are now eligible to earn an Airline Transport Pilot certification with as few as 1,000 flying hours instead of the typically required 1,500 hours.

Dale Watson, director of flight education at Auburn, said this is an opportunity for graduates of either the aviation management program or the professional flight management program to be hired sooner than they would without the exemption.
