Associate in Science

Aviation Operations (2253)

This program has changed — Please see the new program page

This program prepares you to pursue a career in aviation technical, administrative or management positions in public, private or government aviation operations, or in military aviation as a commissioned officer or pilot. You can gain the entry-level knowledge and skills you need to become an airline business manager, airport manager or, with additional training, an air traffic controller.

You may receive college credit for previous flight and ground school courses, or currently held FAA certificates; however, awarding of such credit will be based solely on Florida Community College’s evaluation of your certificate(s), training and competency. Beginning the 2003-2004 catalog year, after enrollment, students will only receive college credit for flight training earned through an FCCJ-contracted flight school.

This associate degree articulates into a bachelor’s of science degree program in Aviation Management at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. See more information on articulation.

Estimated tuition is $4,050 (for Florida residents, as of 7/05). Estimated cost of textbooks, materials and fees is $500.
