CALEDON, ON, Jan. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - Sheridan College and the Brampton Flight Centre will be taxiing out an innovative new joint program that will allow students to earn both a business degree and their commercial pilot's license at the same time.

The partnership is in response to a massive demand for new pilots and a major shift in the requirements for commercial pilots.  Boeing estimates that in Canada and the United States there is a looming demand for nearly 100,000 new commercial pilots, and over 460,000 globally in the coming years.  The program also addresses the hiring shift among commercial airlines to require degree accreditations among new pilots entering the industry.

Sheridan's Bachelor of Applied Business (Global Business Management) degree and the Brampton Flight Centre's world class flight training facility will allow students interested in a career as a pilot to go from zero experience to commercial pilot in four years.

What:   Launch of Sheridan College & Brampton Flight Centre Commercial Pilot/Applied Business Degree program.

Where: 13691 McLaughlin Road, Caledon, Ontario - Brampton Flight Centre Lecture Hall

When: January 25, 2012, 10:00 am
