- Agricultural Aviation
A graduate in Agricultural Aviation will seek specialized flight training from an independent training facility specializing in aerial application or take the more traditional route of working for an aerial applicator as a loader, while building flight experience toward a seat in a spray plane. Agricultural aviators are in demand at present, so the job prospects are great.
- Law Enforcement Aviation
A Law Enforcement Aviation graduate will find career opportunities such as a conservation officer/pilot or as a pilot/agent for agencies such as customs and border protection or municipal or state law enforcement agencies.
- Natural Resources Aviation
Natural Resources Aviation graduates will embark on careers in the fields of wildlife management or conservation area management. Careers as a wildlife biologist/pilot provide great diversity of experience as well as a rewarding career path. Counting migratory birds, large mammals, or conducting inventories or recreationists are often done with the aid of aircraft.
