class sizes


With class sizes of no more than 30 students, you're never just a number. Each Flight Technology & Operations (FTO) student is assigned a flight instructor at the beginning of each semester so you're able to get the one on one attention that you need to succeed!



BGSU is one of only two universities in the United States that has an airport on campus. The Wood County Regional Airport is only a short walk/free shuttle ride from the residence halls, making getting to your flight slot/class hassle-free. Learn more about the airport here
