Overview Today’s aerospace environment is incredibly complex. Like the most complex of machines, the global aerospace system is a series of interlocking gears and cogs that must be kept operating at the highest possible level of safety 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, year after year. Every unexpected event causes a ripple that affects the system as a whole. People generally think about pilots when considering the aerospace environment, failing to account for the millions of men and women around the world who help keep the numerous aircraft in the sky. For every two pilots on an airline flight deck, there are about 100 people who support that particular flight operation–and the commercial airlines are only a part of a much larger aerospace environment! The Aerospace Administration degree program at Polk State College prepares students with this big-picture conceptual approach to the aerospace industry. Students receive a well-rounded education, not only in operational theory, but also in operational practice, using past, present, and potential-event case studies in the aerospace business field. Students enjoy both classroom and field work opportunities in this program, culminating in various administrative internship possibilities that can act to kick start an exciting, rewarding career in aerospace administration. Structure Like all commercial (and many private) aviation operators in today’s aerospace environment, the Aerospace Program at Polk State College embraces the concept of a Safety Management System (SMS) as a quality management approach to controlling risk. Therefore, all curricula and aviation activities... [-]
