Aviation Program Flying High across Kentucky
Eastern Kentucky University’s aviation program continues to write its name in the skies above the Commonwealth.
On Jan. 28, University officials met with representatives of Ashland Community and Technical College (ACTC) to discuss a 2+2 partnership to offer ACTC students a degree in aviation through EKU’s highly accredited program.
“Because the University is uniquely positioned as the only higher education institution in the state offering a degree in aviation, we are committed to expanding our FAA certified program all across Kentucky,” said EKU President Michael Benson. “Thus far, EKU has entered into a partnership or is in final discussions for a 2+2 partnership with KCTCS Middlesboro, Hazard, Owensboro, Hopkinsville, and Somerset. Ashland will make the sixth potential EKU aviation partner.”
