From Southern Illinois University Carbondale: The Associate of Applied Science degree (AAS) in Aviation Flight (AF) prepares students for careers as professional pilots. Students in the AF degree begin their flight training in their first semester and may begin working as Certified Flight Instructors (CFI) in the program by their senior year. Approximately 80% of students in the Associate of Applied Science degree program complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Management as a 2 + 2 arrangement – getting both the AAS and the BS degrees in a four year period.

The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management (AVM) builds on technical training in aviation maintenance, flight, avionics technology, air traffic control, aircraft operations support, military, and government agencies. Students in Aviation Management can tailor their studies to their interests, including airlines, general aviation operations, finance, safety, regulations, air traffic control, maintenance management, and airport management and planning.

The Master of Science in Aviation Management program is designed to prepare working-professionals and full-time students for advancement in the aviation industry. Online asynchronous delivery affords working professionals the ability to maintain their professional and personal lives while completing a degree that builds on previous experience and education. The objectives of the program are to produce graduates who are prepared to acquire management positions within the aviation industry and are able to pursue continued education or demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning.
