The Aviation/Airport Management program offers training in aviation, including two full years of college education which can be transferred to programs at four-year colleges. In addition, the college launched a Light Sport Aircraft Pilot Certificate in January 2011.
The job market in aviation is so diverse that the future employment outlook is excellent. You may graduate from this program and with experience, find a position as a flight instructor, corporate pilot, airport manager, aviation salesperson or airline pilot. Iowa Lakes was the first college in the nation to secure a Cirrus SR20 airplane for student education.
Once you have successfully completed the Aviation/Airport Management program you will have private and commercial pilot licenses, instrument rating and certified flight instructor rating, instrument flight instructor rating and/or multi-engine rating.
Students wishing to gain work experience may choose to apply for any available internship programs.
