Associate of Applied Science in Aviation Administration
Aviation administrators require knowledge of aircraft operating limitations and performance, weather and atmospheric processes, federal regulations, and airport operations. The AAS in Aviation Administration provides an introduction to administrative duties and requirements as well as the skills necessary to provide administrative support.
All students must meet with an academic advisor in the Aviation Technology Division (ATD) prior to beginning any program of study and are encouraged to meet each semester for the purpose of reviewing their academic progress and planning future courses. It is particularly important for students to meet with their advisor whenever academic difficulties arise. Degree check sheets are available in the ATD Office.
