Flight Operations Management

Flight Operations Management involves the business, leadership and planning aspects of the aviation industry.

While most people identify pilots, air traffic controllers and flight attendants with aviation, there are an even greater number of Flight Operations Management professionals working for the airlines, managing airports, monitoring safety, and regulating the industry in order to keep our air transportation system running smoothly and efficiently. The CCBC Flight Operations Management degree is a hybrid degree program consisting of aviation courses and business courses.

There are numerous Flight Operations Management career opportunities in the areas of airport and airline management, aircraft maintenance, aviation marketing, finance, and planning, law enforcement, and state and federal government aviation agencies such as the Maryland Aviation Administration, Federal Aviation Administration, National Transportation Safety Board, Department of Defense, and Department of Homeland Security.
