Southeastern is interested in creating the highest quality aviation education possible for its students. We are most interested in accepting students who have the highest aptitude and the highest chances of succeeding in the aviation industry as a professional pilot. While having piloting experience is not necessarily a requirement indicating success, it certainly has some weight.
