College Degrees

Quantum Helicopters does not require students to enroll in a college program in order to graduate from the flight training courses offered through Quantum.  Successful completion of the Professional Pilot Instrument Program fully qualifies graduates for employment in the helicopter industry. 

However, for those who do wish to earn a college degree, Quantum Helicopters has joined forces with Dodge City Community College and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide.   Veterans wishing to utilize the Post 9/11 GI Bill® funding for flight training must select the Dodge City program.

Students who choose to participate in a college program may be eligible for federal assistance, student grants, and low-interest college loans.

The Flight Instructor Pilot program is a two-year, Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree program. This program is made possible by a contract between Dodge City Community College (DC3) and Quantum Helicopters. The Private Pilot Helicopter Certification course is an “in-house” DC3 course taught by DC3 adjunct flight instructors and the equipment is leased from Quantum. All other flight courses are taught by Quantum flight instructors.

Quantum Helicopters hosts free information sessions for this program. If you would like to attend one of our information sessions, please submit a reservation request.
