Funny how word gets out around the world—sometimes better than at “home.” Florida Tech prides itself on the education it provides its flight students as well as the flight training. Our graduates in aeronautics are suited for much more than being airline and charter pilots. They have the background to provide leadership in several areas including airline management, airport management, airport design, meteorology and many others. We now have significant programs underway or in planning with several major airlines. Some of the interesting ones are COPA (Panama), TAL (Turkey), Airlingus (Ireland), Qatari (Qatar) and China Air (China). Pretty much covers the globe, so maybe we really are better known outside the U.S. than inside.
