This degree has a concentration in Missions Aviation along with all the classes in the Bible major and the Intercultural Studies track (see the page for the Bible Major). Students enrolled in this program are prepared academically to engage with missions organizations that employ missionary aviators.
The degree is designed to integrate a concentration in aircraft maintenance with an elective second year in flight training, thereby giving the graduate valuable training for work on the mission field. The graduate will typically require some additional experiential work in the aviation field before being accepted into a missions agency.
The technical concentration for this degree is completed at the School of Missionary Aviation Technology (SMAT) upon completion of the sophomore year at Cornerstone. It will be necessary to complete the pre-entrance requirements of SMAT before proceeding with the technical training. Cornerstone will accept the FAA certificate earned by the graduates of SMAT’s one- and two-year programs as evidence of prior learning, in the amount of 60 (sixty) credits, towards a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree in Missions Aviation.
