Utah Valley State College provides distance learning degrees through several flight schools. If no school near you currently offers it, maybe try to convince them to hook up with UVSC - looks like it makes financing easier for students through the school and they offer AA,AS, and BS degrees. I don't know much more about the details, here's the link:

Do you have any specifics? Will you be able to get a major? What aircraft are they going to use?

The UVSC program is aviation. Your online courses are fixed wing based and you still have to do the helicopter ground school portion at your flight school. The plus side is your getting College credit for your flight hrs and more fin options.

We will start working on the program at SDSU in Brookings,SD in May. As soon as I have solid information I will post it asap. Right now it looks like we will have the helicopter training program up and running by the start of school this fall using the Hughes/Schweizer helicopter.

I am at Bridgewater State College in Massachusetts. They have a fixed wing program affiliated with Delta airlines. The main reason I decided to go to this school was because they said that they would let me train in helicopters after i got the fixed wing rating i wanted. I had my private fixed wing when i got to college and then got my instrument, next I started doing my commercial helicopter at Plymouth Airport. I am the first kid at my school to do helicopter training. We would like to get more students so we can start a program like delta has. The school is great and the tuition is cheap because its a state school, which is good when flying costs so much. The school has been very cooperative with me in setting up pretty much my own program and its been fun. let me know if you have any questions.

But the hourly rate for the birds is similar to most other operations, right?

Just FYI, UVSC has changed up the AAS degree. You have 4 specialty options to choose from. CFI, FO, Management, and Air Traffic Control.

So far the only combination I've seen that I cared for was USVC and Upper Limit. I have to say I'm not sold on taking the ground school for fixed wings. I'm not afraid of it but I don't like the idea of spending the money. Although a lot of jobs I've seen did prefer fixed wing ratings as well as rotary. Does anyone know if you have to get all the fixed wing certifications to complete the program or do the Helicopter Certifications count? Or neither?
In the USVC section, Upper Limit is saying that you can complete the Flight training in 6 Months. My understanding was that the Disbursement schedule for standard student loans was a problem in that they would only disburse 10-15K a year. Is this not the case?
Anyone have opinions on Upper Limit Aviation? I've scanned this thread a few times but I have not found any Rotary specific College programs - correct me if I'm wrong.

Adam, according to Dr. Smart at UVSC, the ground school is fixed wing based and the flight portion can be either fixed or heli. If you are in Heli training you will have to complete the heli ground portion with your CFI. To complete the degree you will have to do ALL the college ground courses, but you only have to complete a commercial rating far as ratings go to graduate. Dr. Smart said that you will sub the COOP hrs to cover other flight ratings.

Alternative Loan Release Form
This form says you only recieve funds once for each flight course. And, issued in $10K increments.

Georgia Aviation Tech
I read somewhere that Embry and some others were working on Heli programs. Wallace College in AL had a course, but I don't know if they still do?
