  • Apply aviation theory, business and leadership principles to serve in the capacity of an aviation business professional in airline and corporate operations, engineering and manufacturing.
  • Exemplify a high standard of ethical and professional behavior.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities are available in airline, corporate and general aviation. Growth in major, regional and low-cost airlines will increase demand for all types of aviation professionals in these companies. In addition, aviation professionals with higher levels of experience and education will have more robust job opportunities. A large number of the positions created in the coming years will be the result of older workers retiring from the industry, prompting the need for new hires.
