AVIA classes are offered every semester.  Whether you are looking to attend ground school to assist you in passing the FAA exam or want to pursue a full degree program, please visit our Class Schedule for current offerings.  Note: Flight training is the sole responsibility of each student and must be contracted with an FAA-approved flight school at the student’s expense. The Palomar Community College District accepts no responsibility or liability for the student’s flight training program.
