John R. Watret, Ph.D., Chancellor for Embry-Riddle Worldwide

The relationship between Embry-Riddle and the military goes back to the 1920s, when the Army Air Corps taught John Paul Riddle to fly. Riddle returned the favor almost 20 years later during World War II by training thousands of Army Air Corps pilots, Naval aviators and Royal Air Force and French pilots.

In 1970, Embry-Riddle Worldwide offered its first courses at Fort Rucker and currently operates campuses on more than 90 military installations around the world.

Embry-Riddle Worldwide, DOD extend memorandum of understanding

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University – Worldwide and the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) finalized a memorandum of understanding July 15, 2014, that authorizes the university’s continued involvement in the DOD Voluntary Education Military Tuition Assistance (TA) Program. The five-year extension reinforces the university’s ongoing commitment to provide high-quality educational programs to active-duty service members stationed in the United States.

Embry-Riddle Worldwide has a long-standing relationship with the U.S. military and currently offers instruction online and at more than 90 military locations. Last year, Embry-Riddle Worldwide was granted a 10-year contract extension that designates the university as the only institution allowed to offer face-to-face aviation courses to U.S. military stationed in Europe.
