What is the program about?

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science in Aviation Technology. The student, having completed this course work, will have the background and skills necessary to gain employment in the aviation industry or continue towards a bachelor's degree in aviation (or a related field). This degree program also serves as the entry path for students who wish to ultimately be admitted into one of the the Aviation Technology/Professional Pilot degrees (APPAO.S.AAS or AVTP.S.BAS). The initial academic (non-flying) course requirements in this degree are the same as those in the professional pilot degrees. Students choose one or more concentration areas: Aviation Management, Aircraft Dispatch or Airline Flight Attendant. The Aircraft Dispatch track leads to the student attaining the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Aircraft Dispatcher (ADX) certificate. The flight attendant concentration leads to to the the student attaining the Sinclair Airline Flight Attendant (AFAS.S.STC) short term certificate.

Program Outcomes

  • Demonstrate a thorough knowledge of Federal Aviation Regulations and their application in aviation business operations.
  • Apply aviation theory, business and leadership principles to serve in the capacity of an aviation business professional in airline and corporate operations, engineering and manufacturing.
  • Exemplify a high standard of ethical and professional behavior.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities are available in airline, corporate and general aviation. Growth in major, regional and low-cost airlines will increase demand for all types of aviation professionals in these companies. In addition, aviation professionals with higher levels of experience and education will have more robust job opportunities. A large number of the positions created in the coming years will be the result of older workers retiring from the industry, prompting the need for new hires.


Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.


Students may choose the Aircraft Dispatcher concentration where they may earn the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher (ADX) certificate.
