Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n20 pA47-A48 Jan 21, 2000
Addresses aviation training requirements for pilots planning to fly for commercial airlines within or outside the United States. Describes two aviation training programs at Western Michigan University, a fast-track 13-month program and the traditional four-year program required for U.S. pilots. Notes that decreasing numbers of pilots trained in the military may force U.S. acceptance of the fast-track approach. (DB)
