Top Hawk is leading the way for collegiate aviation programs to continue training the next generation of pilots. Top Hawk is a partnership between Textron Aviation and top university aviation schools to provide students with access to the world’s most popular trainer, the Cessna® Skyhawk®, and provide unique internship opportunities with the world’s leading general aviation manufacturer.
Select universities will participate in Top Hawk to promote general aviation and connect future pilots to higher education. Universities will receive a factory new, custom branded Cessna Skyhawk to use for the duration of the program to promote aviation at air shows, aviation contests, and recruiting events. Top Hawk aircraft also allow schools to showcase their connection to Textron Aviation’s reputable internship program and support discovery flights and learn to fly programs.
Congratulations to Auburn University, Eastern Kentucky University, Louisiana Tech University, Ohio State University and Southern Illinois University, who are participating in the 2017 Top Hawk program to promote general aviation and connect future pilots to higher education!
