Note: All flight training for students admitted to the University of Nebraska at Kearney Aviation Program will be conducted in accordance with the UNK Aviation Program Student Handbook. This Handbook contains all policies and procedures governing flight training. The Handbook also specifies procedures which must be followed by students who are admitted to UNK with flight certificates and ratings not obtained from an approved college or university.
