AVIATION EDUCATION: PERCEPTIONS OF AIRPORT CONSULTANTS

The necessity for advanced training in aviation has prompted a few universities to establish graduate programs in aviation. Although several masters aviation programs are now well established, they do not have a common core curriculum. This article reports the findings of a study designed to learn more about the educational needs of one segment of the aviation industry -- the airport consulting business. Airport consultants were first asked to evaluate the relevance of courses offered in an existing MPA program. They were then asked to evaluate sixteen fields of academic study in terms of importance in preparing entry-level employees for a career in airport consulting.
