Description:Our Bachelor of Aviation Technology program provides a rigorous aviation technology–based curriculum and the application of this theory to aviation. The breadth of knowledge and skills prepares you to operate safely in a complex aircraft, to understand the technologies and human factors that affect the successful operation of an aircraft and to assume the professional responsibility associated with being a commercial pilot. You’ll also learn business management, airport operations and planning, and air carrier administration to gain a "larger sense" of the aviation industry and ultimately access a greater variety of careers in the industry.

Students in the Flight Program benefit from a full-time consecutive co-operative education work experience. One successful (as indicated by the learning outcomes for co-operative education work terms) work term of 14 weeks is required for graduation. This work term may be taken during Term 3 of either Year 2 or Year 3.
