What will I learn?

An aviation management with flight degree combines the academic coursework of a degree in aviation management with Florida Tech’s world-renowned flight training.

The degree provides a comprehensive background in aviation studies, management, and business, preparing students for careers in areas such as that of a professional pilot or airport consultant, and working in airline management, aircraft manufacturing, and more. Students in this program develop a strong background in aviation and build experience in modern aeronautical technology and flight operations.

Specialize In Air Traffic Control

In addition to the option of flight training, the aviation management degree program offers another option to graduate with a specialization in Air Traffic Control (ATC). The ATC specialization meets the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Air Traffic-Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI) program and is FAA-approved. Graduates of the program are often eligible to bypass the Air Traffic Basics Course at the FAA Academy.

Build Lasting Professional Relationships Through Campus Organizations

Beyond the classroom, aviation management degree students build leadership and professional experience through exciting internships and participation in academic organizations like Collegiate Aviation Business Executives, a student chapter of American Association of Airport Executives, the Falcons Intercollegiate Flight Team, Women in Aviation, student government, and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.

Career Options: For those seeking a career in aviation management, jobs include: Various forms of piloting; Airline Manager; Airport Manager; Airport Security Manager; Air traffic Controller; Systems Management; Business Management; Freight and Cargo Management; Airfield Operations.
