The Aviation Major is diverse as it also may include Aircraft Maintenance, Airport Logistics and Air Traffic Control. As more people take to the sky in private aircraft, learning about the business and complex logistics of aviation is as important as learning to fly or fix the aircraft. With an Aviation Degree, you can work anywhere in the country. Most major cities have more than one airport so the opportunities are there.
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
- Many offer internships, scholarships, and opportunities in the major
