Since its inception in 1978, BGSU's aviation program has produced some of the most competent, highly skilled airline pilots, cargo pilots, airport managers, FBO managers, corporate executives and military professionals! BGSU Aviation is an FAR Part 141 approved flight education and training program. Aviation majors choose from one of two specializations: Flight Technology and Operations (FTO) or Aviation Management and Operations (AMO). Coursework in each specialization is complemented with business and liberal arts classes that differentiate BGSU’s program from other similar programs. Each specialization offers a combination of theory and hands-on practice, including cooperative education work experiences. The faculty are leaders in using and teaching emerging technologies and practices in the field of aviation. The program is fully accredited by Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI) and The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).
