Mercer County Community College Aviation Degree Program

OVERVIEW

Infinity Flight Group is proud to have maintained a long-standing partnership with Mercer County Community College (MCCC) Aviation Program that is nationally accredited with Part 141-certification. It is the only College Aviation Technology Program in the state of New Jersey.

Classroom instruction is completed at the MCCC West Windsor Campus, and flight instruction is given at Trenton Mercer Airport at the Infinity Flight Group facility, only a short drive away from MCCC.

Flying out of Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN) allows students to train in some of the busiest airspace in the nation. TTN logs over 100,000 take-offs and landings each year, is home to several Fortune 100 corporate jets, as well as major airlines, and is supported by an award winning air traffic control tower.

In addition to a newer fleet of meticulously maintained Cessna aircraft, and a twin-engine Piper Seminole, Infinity Flight also offers some of the latest FAA-approved flight simulator technology. These simulators can be configured to mimic numerous aircraft, providing students with a consistent training environment, and also allow students to become familiar with aircraft performance outside of the airplane.

Students who successfully complete their training through the Mercer County Community College program will receive an Associate in Applied Science degree in Aviation Flight Technology, and Commercial Pilot Certification with an Instrument Rating. Some students may also choose to advance on through the Certified Flight Instructor Program (CFI). Utilizing airline “flow-through” agreements, students can go from their Private Pilot Certificate straight through to future employment as an airline pilot.
