FAQs – Bill Noe Flight School

Students may apply to Marshall and we will contact you about the flight program enrollment

All applicants to this program must meet Marshall University’s general freshman or transfer student admissions requirements at  https://www.marshall.edu/admissions/.

Marshall requires all flight students have at least a Second Class Medical when starting the flight program. However, we recommend students get a First Class Medical prior to flight training to make sure they do not have any medical conditions that could disqualify them from flying with airlines. Medicals MUST be done by an FAA Aviation Medical Examiner (AME).

Visit the FAA’s MedXpress website to begin your medical certificate application. Call your local AME to make an appointment. To find an AME near you, please use the FAA’s AME Locator  or visit Flight Physical.com.

The following physicians may be available for your Medical Examination; these physicians operate independently and are not employed by Marshall University.

  1. Jason Hudak, 304-733-5990, Huntington, WV
  2. Joseph Matusic, 304-343-1863, Charleston, WV
  3. Donald Newell, 304-469-3334, Fayetteville, WV. Please ask for Michelle when calling for an appointment.

All flight training costs will be published here as soon as they are finalized. It is expected our flight school students will average $58,900 in training costs over the four years ($76,800 for Flight Instructor option). Students vary in learning styles and time to grasp concepts, so these costs are approximate only.

These flight training costs are in addition to regular tuition and fees, housing, books, meals, etc.

Students will live in Charleston.

Students will take all classes at the Bill Noe Flight School at Yeager Airport (CRW) and at Marshall’s South Charleston campus.
