Charleston Southern University Launches Professional Pilot Program

Charleston Southern University and CRAFT Flight Training hosted the CSU Aeronautics Liftoff ribbon-cutting event at Summerville Airport with representatives from CSU, CRAFT, Boeing, and the Federal Aviation Administration, as well as community members and elected officials. 

“We are very excited that by virtue of this aeronautics program we get to live our calling—that is to prepare servant leaders to pursue significant lives,” President Dr. Dondi Costin said. “What we get to do at Charleston Southern is help people understand what their passion is, what their purpose is, and now—as of today—if their passion is flying, whether it be as a commercial airline pilot, or a military pilot, or a missionary pilot—they will be able to do that after graduating from Charleston Southern.”
